I'll take a stab at it...

Why don't you show us your work? Maybe someone can see where your error is.

Did you start with three separate simultaneous equations? Did you CORRECTLY isolate for x by adding or subtracting two of the three equations and applying the log function? Did you CORRECTLY isolate for y by adding or subtracting two of the three equations and applying the log function? ARE YOU APPLYING THE LOG FUNCTION CORRECTLY? Did you add the new equations together to create an x + y expression within an equation? Were you able to isolate the x + y expression? Were you able to manipulate the remaining algabraic expressions so that x + y = 1 ? Q.E.D. if you did.
