Question from Amarah, a student:

Find the coordinates of the point A( this point is where the two lines intersect). Justify answer
question : here is a curve x^y =y^x (for x,y>o)

Hi Amarah,

If you rewrite the expression it might become more apparent where the curves intersect:

What values of x & y would make this expression true?
