Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plus 28 on both sides. meaning you wud cancel out 28 and add 28 to 17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait i got 25y  28 = 17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember x=5y7 and we know y=3 so x=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there are other ways to solve this types i like substitution the most thats what we did above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x=5y7 add 7 to both sides x+7=5y now divide by 5 on both sides (x+7)/(5)=y y=x/(5)+7/(5) y=x/57/5 the other equation...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14x+5y=17 solve for y we subtract 4x on both sides 5y=4x+17 now divide by 5 y=(4x+17)/5 y=4x/5+17/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to see where the lines intersect set them equal after putting both in y=mx+b form so we have x/57/5=4x/5+17/5 we can get rid of the fractions by multiplying both sides by 5 so we have x7=4x+17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1solve the above this equation for x by first add 4x on both sides 3x7=17 adding 7 3x=24 x=8 to find out what y is we just plug into either y=4x/5+17/5 or y=x/57/5 so if x=8, y=8/57/5=15/5=3 so the ordered pair is (x,y)=(8,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahhh. but i like the other way better. this one seems like more work. but i find the other one easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, can you see if im right on this other one i did.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y= 1/2x  2 ( a half times x minus 2 ) y= 3x +5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x/22=3x+5 x4=6x+10 7x=14 x=2 so y=3(2)+5=1 (x,y)=(2,1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you explain to me how you got x4 = 6x + 10 what did you multiply?

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i just got rid of the fractions by multiplying both sides by 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm. so you multiplied the reciprocal of x/2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is 2/x then you multiplied that by 2 and 3 and positive 5.
