```										Hi
Let p=root(x) and q=root(y).
Then, the given equations become
p2q+pq2=20
and p3+q3=65
or,
pq(p+q)=20 and p3+q3=65.
Use the identity p3+q3=(p+q)3-3pq(p+q) in the second equation.
From the first equation, we already know that pq(p+q)=20.
So the second equation becomes
(p+q)3-3(20)=65 (Since pq(p+q)=20 )
So, (p+q)3= 60+65=125
Hence, p+q = 125^(1/3) = 5.
Putting this back into pq(p+q)=20, we get pq=4.
Or, root(xy) = 4. So, xy=16.
Hence, the only possible integer solutions are (1,16),(2,8),(4,4),(8,2),(16,1)
Out of these, only (1,16) and (16,1) satisfy the equations. So we have 2 solutions. Option b

```										Squaring the equations and subtracting, we get (x-y)2 (x+y) = 85 X 45 = 17 X 52 X 32

Hence (x-y)2 = 25 and x+y = 153 or

(x-y)2 = 9 and x+y = 425 or

(x-y)2 = 152 and x+y = 17

Its easy to verify that x=16, y = 1 and x=1 and y = 16 are the only solutions
