Solve the following pair of equations.
Here, x ≠ 1 and y ≠ 2
x = 4, y = 5
If we substitute 1x−1 as p and 1y−2 as q in the given equations, we get the equations as
Now, we can solve the pair of equations by method of elimination.
On multiplying the first equation by 3 and then adding it to (2), we get
Now by substituting the value of p in equation (2) we get
Similarly we assumed q=1y−2
∴x=4 and y=5
