This my way of proof

1 - can not be any of the X, Y number is negative because in this case it would output the left end in a fraction equations absolute value smaller than 1

2 - can not be any of the X, Y equal to zero because in this case would be the left end result = either 1 or zero or undefined

3 - can not be any of the X, Y equal to 1 because it has achieved one of the equations can not be achieved while the other

And therefore there is no option for X, Y only be a Moajabin greater than 1

4 - can not be greater than Q Ooisawi 3 because when you is no more achieved the first equation and therefore the only value for Q is 2

5 - can not be greater than p. 4 Ooisawi because it is no more realized when the second equation and therefore the only value of r is 3

What do you think
