Step-by-step explanation:

x+y=8---------1

1/x+1/y=8/15----2

by 2

=x+y/xy=8/15

8/xy=8/15

xy=15

x=15/y

15/y+y=8

y^2-8y+15

(y-5)(y-3)

when y=5 , x=3

when y=3 , x=5

Answer:

x=3or 5

y = 3 or 5

Step-by-step explanation:

let the numbers be x and y

ATQ

x+y=8, x=8-y

and

 \frac{1}{x}  +  \frac{1}{y}  =  \frac{8}{15} ...(i)

putting x=8-y in (i) we get

 \frac{1}{8 - y}  +  \frac{1}{y}  =  \frac{8}{15}

 \frac{y + (8 - y)}{8 - y(y)}  =  \frac{8}{15}

 \frac{8}{8y -  {y}^{2} }  =  \frac{8}{15}

8(8y -  {y}^{2} ) = 8 \times 15

64y -  {8y}^{2}  = 120

 {8y}^{2}  - 64y + 120 = 0

or

 {y}^{2}  - 8y + 15 = 0

 {y}^{2}  - 5y - 3y + 15  = 0\\ y(y - 5) - 3(y - 5) = 0

(y - 3)(y - 5) = 0

either (y-3)=0 or (y-5)=0

y=3 or y=5

Hence , x=8-y= 3 or 5

so, values of x and y may be 3 and 5 or 5 and 3.
