4. If x 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 and x y 2 = 1 27 , solve for x and y . Rearrange the second equation. x y 2 = 1 27 x = y 2 27 Sub x = y 2 27 into the ﬁrst equation. x 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ± y 2 27 ² 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ( y 2 ) 3 27 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ( y 6 ) (3 3 ) 3 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 ( y 6 ) 3 9 y 5 = 2 11 · 3 13 y 11 = 3 9 · 2 11 · 3 13 y 11 = 2 11 · 3 22 y 11 = (2 · 3 2 ) 11 y = 2 · 3 2 = 18 Sub y = 2 · 3 2 into the second equation. x y 2 = 1 27 x = y 2 27 x = (2 · 3 2 ) 2 27 x = 2 2 · 3 4 3 3
x = 2 2 · 3 4 - 3 x = 2 2 · 3 1 = 12 5. Solve for
