Given Two equations,

$\\ax + by = c.........(1)\\ bx +ay = 1 + c.........(2)$

Now By Cross multiplication method,

$\frac{x}{b_1c_2-b_2c_1}=\frac{y}{c_1a_2-c_2a_1}=\frac{1}{a_1b_2-a_2b_1}$

$\frac{x}{(b)(-1-c)-(-c)(a)}=\frac{y}{(-c)(b)-(a)(-1-c)}=\frac{1}{(a)(a)-(b)(b)}$

$\frac{x}{-b-bc+ac}=\frac{y}{-cb+a+ac}=\frac{1}{a^2-b^2}$

$x=\frac{-b-bc+ac}{a^2-b^2},\:and\:y=\frac{a-bc+ac}{a^2-b^2}$
