please deliver me from this question

For what value of x,y&z will the equation p^x, v^y, T^z = a constant becomes Boyles law. please show your workings

Well, for starters, what is Boyle's Law?

Boyle's law states that for a a given mass of gas, the pressure in indirectly proportional to volume provided the absolute temperature is constant.

So p/v = (p^1)/(v^1) = (p^x)/(v^y) = constant. What, then, must x and y be?
