I want to know if there is another function satisfies this – Cr Ãnänd · 1 year, 4 months ago

we have that \(f(f(x)f(y))=(f(f(x)y)+f(x))=f(f(x)f(y))+y+f(x)\)

and also \(f(f(x)f(y))=f(f(x)f(y))+x+f(y)\)

which mean \(f(f(x)f(y))+y+f(x)=f(f(x)f(y))+x+f(y)\)

so \(f(x)-x=f(y)-y=k\)

so \(f(x)=x+k\)

we substitute the result in the first equation we find \(k=1\).
