# If 7x – 15y = 4x + Y, Find the Value of X: Y. Hence, Use Componendo and Dividend to Find the Values Of: (3x^2 + 2y^2)/(3x^2 - 2y^2) - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

If 7x – 15y = 4x + y, find the value of x: y. Hence, use componendo and dividend to find the values of:

(3x^2 + 2y^2)/(3x^2 - 2y^2)

#### Solution

7x - 15y = 4x + y

7x - 4x = y + 15y

3x = 16y

x/y = 16/3

=> x^2/y^2 = 256/9

=> (3x^2)/(2y^2) = (768)/18 = 128/3   (Multiplying both sides by 3/2)

=> (3x^2 + 2y^2)/(3x^2 - 2y^2) = (128 + 3)/(128 - 3)   (Applying componendo and dividendo)

=> (3x^2 + 2y^2)/(3x^2 - 2y^2) = 131/125

Is there an error in this question or solution?
