Easy to see that \(x=0,\pi/2\) are trivial solutions and wolfram gives http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=solve+sin%5E5x%2Bcos%5E5x%3D1%2C+0%3Cx%3Cpi%2F2 idk how to prove that solutions don't exist for \(0\lt x\lt \pi/2\) ..

looks cool http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=x^2%2By^2%3D1%2Cx^5%2By^5%3D1

that looks cool indeed xD i know it boils down to \(\sin^2x+\cos^2x=1\) somehow

that is your only real condition right?

if you mean x is real, yes..

you are solving \[x^5+y^5=1\] given that \[x^2+y^2=1\]
rational

Ahh right! both problems are equivalent

and i feel equally hard/easy

yeah and i wouldn't bet more than $7 that there is not some more snappy approach
anonymous

maybe just graph \(x^5+y^5=1\)
rational
  • rational
I think so... is it sufficient if we could show that \(x^5+y^5\lt x^2+y^2\) for \(x,y\in (0,1)\)

Wow! that does it! thnks @satellite73

sure calculus can solve everything :) it is easy to notice that \(a^n \lt a^m\) for \(a\in (0, 1)\) and \(n\gt m\)
rational
  • rational
its not stupid, i think its an alternative approach...
rational
  • rational
Here is the complete proof : for \(x\in(0,1)\) we have \(\sin^5x\lt \sin^2x\) and \(\cos^5x\lt \cos^2x\). that implies \(\sin^5x+\cos^5x \lt \sin^2x+\cos^2x=1\) \(\blacksquare\)
