You can restate this as

Find the largest number which divides 132 - 62 and 237 -132 (with no remainder).

That takes care of brute force use =)

Brute force reveals that the set of positive integer solutions is {1,5,7,35} of which 35 is the largest.

Not sure about how to solve more intelligently.

@Geezah: I interpreted "62,132,237" to mean "62, 132, and 237".

@gianlino: Thanks! It's so simple now that you point it out.
