IMC2019: Day 1, Problem 2

Problem 2. A four-digit number \(\displaystyle YEAR\) is called very good if the system

\(\displaystyle \begin{aligned} Yx+Ey+Az+Rw &= Y \\ Rx + Yy + Ez + Aw &= E \\ Ax + Ry + Yz + Ew &= A \\ Ex + Ay + Rz + Yw &= R \end{aligned} \)

of linear equations in the variables \(\displaystyle x,y,z\) and \(\displaystyle w\) has at least two solutions. Find all very good YEARs in the 21st century.

(The 21st century starts in 2001 and ends in 2100.)
