# Let us solve the following simultaneous linear equations in two variables by applying cross multiplication method.ax – by = a2 – b2

bx + ay = 2ab (Multiplying both sides by ab)

bx + ay - 2ab = 0

ax - by - (a2 - b2) = 0

To solve the equation by cross multiplication method, we use:

Putting the values, we get:

So, and

x = a and y = b
