by applying delta =0 condition we see that the above represents a pair of infinite points satisfy the equation.

Dear sudarshan


  x2-x(y+4)+y2 -4y +16=0

if it has real solution then D≥0

so (y+4)2 -4( y2 -4y +16)≥0

 or (y-4)2  ≤0

 only possible when y=4

so for y=4 only one value of x=4 possible

so only one pair (4,4) is the solution

The equation is equivalent to (x-y)2+(x-4)2+(y-4)2 = 0 which means x=y=4 is the only solution.
