#### Question

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

`(9x + 5y)/(9x - 5y)`

#### Solution

7x – 15y = 4x + y

7x - 4x = y + 15y

3x = 16y

`x/y = 16/3`

`=> (9x)/(5y) = 144/15` (Multiplying both sides by 9/5)

`=> (9x + 5y)/(9x - 5y) = (144 + 15)/(144 - 15)` (Applying componendo and dividenfo)

`=> (9x + 5y)/(9x - 5y) = (159)/(129) = 53/43`

Is there an error in this question or solution?

Solution If 7x – 15y = 4x + Y, Find the Value of X: Y. Hence, Use Componendo and Dividend to Find the Values Of: (9x + 5y)/(9x - 5y) Concept: Componendo and Dividendo Properties.
