# Find the Value of 27x3 + 8y3, If 3x + 2y = 14 and Xy = 8 - Mathematics

Find the value of 27x3 + 8y3, if 3x + 2y = 14 and xy = 8

#### Solution

In the given problem, we have to find the value of  27x^3 + 8y^3

Given  3x + 2y = 14, xy = 8

On cubing both sides we get,

(3x+ 2y)^3 = (14)^3

We shall use identity  (a+b)^3 = a^3 + b^3 + 3ab(a+b)

27x^3 + 8y^3 + 3(3x) (2y) (3x+ 2y) = 14 xx 14 xx 14

27x^3 + 8y^3 +18(xy)(3x+2y) = 14 xx 14 xx 14

27x^3 + 8y^3 + 18(8)(14) = 2744

27x^3 + 8y^3 + 2016 = 2744

 27x^3 + 8y^3 = 2744 -2016

27x^3 +8y^3 = 728

Hence the value of  27x^3 +8y^3is 728.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
