Compare them (Posted on 2018-09-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Two positive distinct numbers fulfill the equation ba- ab=1

Which is larger:a or b?

For what (x,y) couple are both terms i.e xy and yx equal?

(In reply to proposed solution by Charlie)

Possibly if limited to integers, b must be larger than a in part 1 as in 3^2 - 2^3 = 1.
