Anyone getting bored?
try this :
If a³ + b³ = 0 , then the value of log (a + b) – 0.5(log a + log b + log 3) is equal to ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[a^3 + b^3 = (a + b)(a^2  ab + b^2)\]So,\[(a + b)(a^2  ab + b^2) = 0\]Dividing both sides by a + b,\[a^2  ab + b^ 2 = 0\]Since \(a^2  2ab + b^2 = (a  b)^2\), we have,\[a^2  2ab + b^2 +ab = 0\]\[(a  b)^2 + ab = 0\]\[(a  b)^2 =  ab\]\[a^2 + b^2 = ab\]One such case is a = 0 and b = 0, but you haven't allowed that. :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm....nice try no other formula for a^3+b^3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Are you sure that your question is correct? If a^3 + b^3=0, then either a=b or a=b=0.... :\ (because x^3 if a one one function)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, thats right, its 0.there is easier way. rather than continuing...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if i read it correctly, there exist no a,b not equal to 0, such that a^2+b^2ab = 0.....??

nipunmalhotra93

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yea...to be clearer, I mean that a^2+b^2ab=0 iff a=b=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u sure about a^2+b^2ab=0 iff a=b=0 ?

nipunmalhotra93

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yea... you can try that... you won't find any a, b s.t a,b are not both zero and the condition is satisfied....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3algebraically, x^3, is a one one function... so, a^3 +b^3=0 implies a^3=(b)^3 which implies a=b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I plotted two graphs.... z=xy and z=x^2+y^2 they intersect only at (0,0) Yes there are three values of b for every a. But they are complex.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If your question covers complex numbers, then it's fine.... but for real, this is it :)
