How to Solve** Complex Simultaneous Equations** where X and Y are of degree 3 (Polynomial) and there are More than two X and Y. Then X and Y Multiply both in equation 1 and equation 2.

Example, Solve the Simultaneous Equation Question **3xy²+x³=9** and **3x²y+y³=18**. Looking at the question, we obviously can’t eliminate or use the elimination method. We also cannot do Substitution by making x or y subject formular.

You may want to quickly go through my post on the 7 Types of Simultaneous Equation questions to expect in any exam by **clicking here** or simply continue reading for the solution to **3xy²+x³=9** and **3x²y+y³=18**.

## How to Solve **3xy²+x³=9** And **3x²y+y³=18**

**Step 1: **Label the equations

**3xy²+x³=9 ….. 1**

**3x²y+y³=18 ….. 2**

**Step 2:** Add Equation 1 and Equation 2

**3xy² + x³ +** **3x²y + y³ = 27**

**x³ + 3xy² +** **3x²y + y³ = 27 ….. 3**

**Step 3:** Simplify the Equation

Recall that (x + y)³ = x³ + 3xy² + 3x²y + y³. Substituting this into Equation 3, we have that

(x + y)³ = 27

x + y = ∛27

**∴ x + y = 3 …. ***

**Step 4:** Subtract Equation 1 from Equation 2

** 3x²y – 3xy² + y³ – x³**** = 9**

** y³ – 3xy² +** **3x²y – x³ = 9 …. 4**

Recall that (y – x)³ = y³ – 3xy² + 3x²y – x³. Substituting this into Equation 3, we have that

(y – x)³ = 9

y – x = ∛9

**∴ y – x = 2.08 …. ****

**Step 5**: Rearrange and Solve equation ***** and equation ******

**x + y = 3 …. 5**

**– x + y = 2.08 … 6**

**Step 6**: Add equation 5 and 6

2y = 5.08 and **y = 2.54**

**Step 7**: Substitute the value of y (y=2.54) in equation 6

– x + 2.54 = 2.08

-x = 2.08 – 2.54

-x = -0.46

**∴ x = 0.46**

**Step 8**: Bring out the solution

The Solution to the Simultaneous Equations **3xy²+x³=9** and **3x²y+y³=18 **is **y = 2.54 and x = 0.46**
