## Solve the following simultaneous equations.${148\over x }+{231 \over y} = {527 \over xy} ;$ ${231 \over x}+ {148 \over y}={610 \over xy}$

Print or Save

Sol:

Consider  ${148\over x }+{231 \over y} = {527 \over xy} ;$

Multiplying throughout by xy

${148 \over x} (xy) + {231 \over y}(xy) = {527 \over xy}(xy)$

148y + 231x = 527
∴  231x + 148y = 527 ...(I)

Now consider,

${231 \over x} + {148 \over y}= {610 \over xy}$

Multiplying throughout by xy

${231 \over x}(xy) + {148 \over y}(xy)= {610 \over xy}(xy)$

∴ 231y + 148x = 610

∴ 148x + 231y = 610 ...(II)

Adding eq. (I) and (II)

231x + 148y = 527

+  148x + 231y = 610

379x + 379y = 1137

x + y = 3 ...(III)    (dividing by 379)

Subtracting eq. (I) and (II)

231x + 148y = 527

–   148x + 231y = 610

(–)       (–)        (–)

83x  –83 y  =  –83

x – y = –1 ...(IV)   (Dividing by 83)

Adding eq. (III) and (IV)

x + y =3

+  x – y = –1

2x      =2

x =1

Place x = 1 in eq. (III)

1 + y =3

y = 3 – 1

y =2
∴ (x, y) = (1, 2) is the required solutions.
