Best Answer

Your two equations are:

AX + BY = A - B

BX - AY = A + B + B

Because you have four variables (A, B, X, Y), you cannot solve for numerical values for X and Y. There are a total of four answers to this question, solving each equation for X and Y independently.

First equation:

X = (A - B - BY)/A

Y= (A - B - AX)/B

Second equation:

X = (A +2B +AY)/B

Y = (BX - A - 2B)/A

x = ab x = 21*37 x = 777

x2y + axy + abx + a2b Factor by grouping. xy(x + a) + ab(x + a) (xy + ab)(x + a)

ab * -b = -ab^-2

(A+B)2 = (A+B).(A+B) =A2+AB+BA+B2 =A2+2AB+ B2 So the Answer is A + B the whole square is equal to A square plus 2AB plus B square. Avinash.

There is no operator given an in such cases it is often taken to be multiplication eg ab = a*b Thus 2*(-4)*(3) = -24

A = 1, B = 9

to solve ab=c+a for a:Divide both sides by b, so:a= (c+a)/b

That factors to (a + 1)(a + b) a = -1, -b b = -a

yes because ab plus bc is ac
