What does it mean to be mutually compatible ?

    What does it mean to be "mutually compatible"?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I wasn't sure if this belonged in the HW forum, but in any case... what does it mean for two expressions to be "mutually compatible"? I am trying to show that the coefficient of volume expansion and the isothermal bulk modulus of a gas are mutually compatible, but I'm not clear on what the precise definition of this is.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
