The element Y forms CCP lattice.
The number of octahedral voids = the number of atoms of Y present.
As all the octahedral voids are occupied by the atoms of X, their number would be equal to that of Y.
So the atoms of elements X & Y are present in equal numbers, in a ratio of 1:1 .
Therefore the formula of the compound is XY.
