Solution

## The correct option is A x=4, y=5If we substitute 1x−1 as p and 1y−2 as q in the given equations. (As x≠1,y≠2) We get the equations as 5p+q=2 6q−3q=1 Now we can solve the pair of equation by method of elimination. 15p+3q=6 6p−3q=1 On adding both the above equations, we get p=13 Now by substituting the value in one of the equation we find q=13 As we have assumed p=1x−1 Therefore, p=1x−1=13 x=4 SImilarly we assumed q=1y−2 Hence 1y−2=13 y−2=3 Thus x=4 and y=5  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   Solving Linear Equations
