Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plug in 32x for y for the equation 2x6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, substitute: you could do as bradley said: y = (3  2x) > (2x  6) = 2*(3  2x) > (2x6) = (6  4x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2x + 4x 6 = 6, therefore 6x  6 = 6, therefore x = 12/6 = 2, x = 2, now use the fact that 32x=y > y now is 32*(2) = 34 = 1 > (x,y) = ( 2, 1 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, well then: the goal is find the values for each variable that satisfy both equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to equations. we are going to proceed in steps to make things easier!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. You move terms in 'x' and 'y' to the left hand side (LHS) and the constants to the right hand side (RHS)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we have: 2x2y = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's move on with step two

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02. From equation "2xy = 3" Let's derive a value for 'y'

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We have y = 3+2x OR y = 32x (we multiply by 1 the LHS and the RHS)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This value: "y = 32x" we are going to replace it in the first equation : 2x2y = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's multiply,. we have: 2x  6 + 4x = 6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's perform the required addition: 6x6 = 6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let's divide by 6 the RHS and the LHS, we have now : "x  1 = 1"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Form here we can easily find the value of x :" x = 2"

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Recall that y = 32x So, we replace: y = 3  2 * 2 ( * stands here for multiplication ) And finally y = 3 4 y = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay!!! Just to quote John Von Neuman : "You don't understand maths, you get accustomed to it" So do a many exercises as you can! That's the key to successful mathematics!
