```Works fine on my system

\$Version

"7.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (February 19, 2009)"

eqns = ((1 - a)*x - b)/a^(i/1) ==
((1 - a)*y - b)/a^(j/1) &&

j == 10;

Timing[soln = {Reduce[eqns, {y},
Backsubstitution -> True] //
ToRules}]

{0.312331, {{j -> 10, a -> 1, b -> 0}, {j -> 10,
y -> -((a^-i (-a^10 b + a^i b + a^10 x - a^11 x))/(-1 + a))}, {j ->
10, a -> 1}}}

eqns /. soln // Simplify

{True, True, True}

Hi Mathematica community,
why Mathematica still running and so can't give me a solution for this system
Reduce[
((1 - a)*x - b)/a^(i/1) == ((1 - a)*y - b)/a^(j/1) && j == 10,{y},
Backsubstitution -> True]

Thank you very much.
