Hi Everbody,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a new member to this forum.I am from INDIA and studying in grade 12.

I was struck in a question and need help.Hope someone could solve it.

The question is to solve these simultaneous equations:-

√x + y = a -------- (i)

x +√y = b ---------- (ii)

I have a few hints such as making a change in variable by introducing

x = m^2 and y= n^2 and then doing some algebraic manipulations to get

(m-n)(1-m-n)=a-b

But I dunno know what to do next. Plz help.
