#### Question

If (x^2 + 3xy^2)/(3x^2y + y^3) = (m^2 + 3mn^2)/(3m^2n + n^3) show that nx = my

#### Solution

(x^2 + 3xy^2)/(3x^2y + y^3) = (m^2 + 3mn^2)/(3m^2n + n^3)

Applying componendo and dividendo

(x^3 + 3xy^2 + 3x^2y + y^3)/(x^3 + 3xy^2 - 3x^2y - y^3) = (m^3 + 3mn^2 + 3m^2n + n^3)/(m^3 + 3mn^2 - 3m^2n - n^3)

(x + y)^3/(x - y)^3 = (m + n)^3/(m - n)^3

(x + y)/(x - y) = (m + n)/(m - n)

Applying componendo and dividendo

(x + y + x - y)/(x + y - x + y) = (m + n + m - n)/(m + n - m + n)

(2x)/(2y) = (2m)/(2n)

x/y = m/n

nx = my

Is there an error in this question or solution?
