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

[tex] \frac {xy}{x+2y} + \frac {x+2y}{xy} = 2 [/tex]

[tex] \frac {xy} {x-2y} + \frac {x-2y} {xy} = 4 [/tex]

The attempt at a solution

I tried replacing

([tex] \frac {xy} {x+2y} = p [/tex], say and

[tex] \frac {xy} {x-2y} = q [/tex],

say is getting nowhere as i can't find a relationship between the two.
