    Indices based problem

    I have thought about it and see no logical way to solve it due to not seeing a relation between the m and y and n and x.

    if then show that xyz = 1

    This is a neat problem. From the given:
    m^y=a^{xy}~\&~n^x=a^{xy} so m^x\cdot n^y=a^{2xy}

    Therefore, a^{2}=(m^x\cdot n^y)^z=a^{2xyz}.

    You finish.
