## Question

x/a-y/b=a-b ax+by=a3+b3 slove by elimination method

• ### 1. User Answers MaheswariS

solution is

$$x=a^2$$ and $$y=b^2$$

Step-by-step explanation:

The given equations can be written as

$$bx-ay=(a-b)ab$$..............(1)

$$ax+by=a^3+b^3$$............(2)

$$(1)*b\implies\:b^2x-aby=(a-b)ab^2$$

$$(2)*a\implies\:a^2x+aby=a(a^3+b^3)$$

$$(a^2+b^2)x=a^2b^2-ab^3+a^4+ab^3$$

$$(a^2+b^2)x=a^2b^2+a^4$$

$$(a^2+b^2)x=a^2(a^2+b^2)$$

$$x=a^2$$

put $$x=a^2$$ in (2)

$$a(a^2)+by=a^3+b^3$$

$$a^3+by=a^3+b^3$$

$$by=b^3$$

$$y=b^2$$

solution is

$$x=a^2$$ and $$y=b^2$$

Step-by-step explanation:

The given equations can be written as

bx-ay=(a-b)abbx−ay=(a−b)ab ..............(1)

ax+by=a^3+b^3ax+by=a

3

+b

............(2)

(1)*b\implies\:b^2x-aby=(a-b)ab^2(1)∗b⟹b

2

x−aby=(a−b)ab

2

(2)*a\implies\:a^2x+aby=a(a^3+b^3)(2)∗a⟹a

x+aby=a(a

put x=a^2x=a

in (2)

a(a^2)+by=a^3+b^3a(a

)+by=a

+b

3

a^3+by=a^3+b^3a

3

+by=a

by=b^3by=b

y=b^2y=b

solution is

x=a^2x=a

and y=b^2y=b
