# If a and B Are Distinct Primes Such that Root3 (A^6b^-4)=A^Xb^(2y), Find X and Y. - Mathematics

Sum

If a and b are distinct primes such that root3 (a^6b^-4)=a^xb^(2y), find x and y.

#### Solution

Given root3 (a^6b^-4)=a^xb^(2y)

rArr(a^6b^-4)^(1/3)=a^xb^(2y)

rArra^(6xx1/3)b^(-4xx1/3)=a^xb^(2y)

rArra^2b^(-4/3)=a^xb^(2y)

⇒ x = 2 and y = -2/3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
