√a + b = 11 => b = 11 - √a 7√b + a = 11 => 49 b = (11 - a)² => 539 - 49 √a = (11 - a)² => 49 √a = 539 - (11 - a)² => 49² a = 539² + (11 - a)⁴ - 2 * 539 * (11 - a) => a⁴ - 4 * 11 a³ + 6 *11² * a² - 4 *11³ a + 11⁴ - 22 * 539 + 1078 a - 49² a = 0 => P(x) = a⁴ - 44 a³ + 726 a² - 7725 a + 2783 = 0 => a has four positive real values at most. It appears. Two of them are : a ≈ 0.37304 and a ≈ 27.7359 b ≈ 10.389 and b ≈ 5.7335

There are no real negative roots. Perhaps there are two more real positive roots or there are two imaginary roots.

The derivative of P(x) = P'(x) = 4 a³ - 132 a² + 1452 a - 7725 has one real root. and two imaginary roots.
