Re: Simple Arithmatic | 8 Dec, 2009

x = 12
y = 9

x-y = 3
x+y = 21
xy = 108

so x-y:x+y:xy => 1:7:36

Re: Simple Arithmatic | 8 Dec, 2009

From the question we can say,

x-y x+y xy
--- = ---- = ---- = r
1 7 36

From this we get three equations,

x - y = r
x + y = 7r
xy = 36r

By solving these equations, we get the value of r=3, x=12, and y=9.

Re: Simple Arithmatic | 8 Dec, 2009

In the previous post, the first equation should be like this:

[(x-y)/1] = [(x+y)/7] = [(xy)/36] = r

It didn't display correctly, so I am reposting that equation here.
