# Check if X and Y can be made zero by using given operation any number of times

Given two integers **X** and **Y**, the task is to check if these two integers can be made equal to 0 by using the given operation any number of times. An operation is described as follows –

- Choose an arbitrary integer
**Z**. - Update the values with either of the following values:
- X = X – 2*Z and Y = Y – 3*Z
- X = X – 3*Z and Y = Y – 2*Z

**Examples:**

Input:X = 6, Y = 9Output:YesExplanation:

Operation 1: Choose Z = 3, X = 6 – 2*3 = 0 and Y = 9 – 3*3 = 0

Since X and Y can be made equal to 0 using 1 operation, the required answer is Yes.Input:X = 33, Y = 27Output:YesExplanation:

Operation 1: Choose Z = 9, X := 33 – 3*9 = 6 and Y := 27 – 2*9 = 9

Operation 2: Choose Z = 3, X := 6 – 2*3 = 0 and Y := 9 – 3*3 = 0

Since X and Y can be made equal to 0 using 2 operation, the required answer is Yes.

**Approach:** Let’s assume X ≤ Y. Then the answer is Yes if two following conditions holds:

**(X + Y) mod 5 = 0**: because after each operation the value (X + Y) mod 5 does not change.

Let’s assume some arbitrary number**Z**has been chosen.

Therefore, the value**(X + Y)**will be changed to

((X - 3Z) + (Y - 2Z))

- This is equal to

(X + Y - 5Z)

- For this value to be equal to 0,
**X + Y = 5Z**. Therefore, on taking mod on both the sides, (X + Y) mod 5 has to be equal to 0. **3*X >= 2*Y**so that the subtraction doesnt make the values of X and Y negative.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
