This is, after all, the second time you have posted this question: all I can do is give the same answer I did before: from x+ y= 5, y= 5- x so the second equation can be written xx+ (5-x)5-x= 31. That equation cannot be solved (for arbitrary right hand side) by any elementary functions. It is possible that such an equation can be solved by the "Lambert W function".

However, as was explained the last time this was posted, in this particular problem,
33+ 22= 31 so x= 3, y= 2 and x= 2, y= 3 are solutions. They are probably the only solutions. It shouldn't be too difficult to check that.
