Q

# If x / 3 + 1 y- 2/ 3 =5 / 3 1 /3 , find the values of x and y.

Q1   If  $\left ( \frac{x}{3}+1 , y - \frac{2}{3} \right ) = \left ( \frac{5}{3},\frac{1}{3} \right )$ , find the values of x and y.

It is given that
$\left ( \frac{x}{3}+1 , y - \frac{2}{3} \right ) = \left ( \frac{5}{3},\frac{1}{3} \right )$
Since the ordered pairs are equal, the corresponding elements will also be equal
Therefore,
$\frac{x}{3}+1= \frac{5}{3} \ \ \ and \ \ \ y - \frac{2}{3}= \frac{1}{3}$
$\frac{x}{3}= \frac{5}{3}-1 \ \ \ and \ \ \ y = \frac{1}{3}+ \frac{2}{3}$
$\frac{x}{3}= \frac{5-3}{3} \ \ \ and \ \ \ y = \frac{1+2}{3}$
$\frac{x}{3}= \frac{2}{3} \ \ \ and \ \ \ y = \frac{3}{3}$
$x= 2 \ \ \ and \ \ \ y = 1$

Therefore, values of x and y are  2  and 1  respectively
