(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Solve the following equations using simultaneous equations

2. Relevant equations

3^{2x}[tex]\times[/tex]2^{3y}=17

4^{x}[tex]\times[/tex]5^{y}=37

Appologies for the bad equation set-up. The large 'x' is a multiplication sign.

3. The attempt at a solution

My attempt was to divide both of the equations together and then solve for x and y respectively, using the laws of logarithms.
