How many pairs of (x,y) satisfy the equations 3x+6y=21 and 4x+8y=16

2 years ago


Answers : (4)


as 3/4=6/8  so these lines are parallel, i.e. have no common point, so 0 pairs of (x,y) will satisfy this

3x + 6y = 21

or, x+2y=7





Inconsistent equations. No solution.

dear suresh,

these two equations reaemble two parallel lines as a1/a2=b1/b2not equal to c1/c2.

so these two lines never intersect and thus have no solution

no solution since they are parallel lines
please post some tough questions next time

prove that n 3 + 3n 2 + 5n + 3 is divisible by 3 for any natural number n
Hello Student, n^3 + 3n^2 + 5n + 3 =n^3 + 3n^2 + 2n+3n + 3 =n(n^2 + 3n + 2)+3n + 3 =n(n+1)(n+2)+3n+3 Prooved Thanks & Regards Arun Kumar Btech, IIT Delhi Askiitians Faculty

By Fermat’s theorem, n 3 -n is divisible by 3. Hence n 3 +3n 2 +5n+3 = (n 3 -n)+(3n 2 +6n+3) = 3m+3(n+1) 2 for some integer m making the expression obviously a multiple of 3.
