What are you supposed to do with this equation? What were the instructions? What have you tried, and how far have you gotten?

Please be complete. Thank you!  April 12th, 2010, 01:05 PM #4 Global Moderator   Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 20,919 Thanks: 2203 There are solutions such as x = 1, y = 0.

According to me, as I have solved it x^2 -92y^2=1 x^2 =1+92y^2 then substitute the value of x^2. If it is solved by substituting then the answer comes as 1=1 Is this correct?

Unless I miss my guess, this is the equation of an hyperbola. Every point on the graph is a "solution" to the equation.

Since you have only one equation but two unknowns, there is no way to find "the" solution, only many solutions or the graph.

My question is this solvable than the other solution I posted, if so please reply   April 14th, 2010, 04:33 AM #9 Global Moderator   Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 20,919 Thanks: 2203 You hadn't previously asked whether the equation can be solved. Instead, you said that the task was to solve for both x and y, which disallows your suggested substitution (since it would need the value of x� to be known in advance). As is stands, the equation has infinitely many real solutions, and infinitely many complex solutions that are not real. However, this type of equation is often set in a context that implies that only integer solutions are sought, which is why I asked about that. There are infinitely many solutions in positive integers, but I suspect you haven't been taught how to find them. Do any of your textbooks even mention Diophantine equations?

I just came across this question. But now I got to know the answer : IE. there are infinite solutions. I found the values for x,y too.  x=1, y=0 or x=1151, y=120 Tags solution Search tags for this page
