Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1solve for x then plug it in the second equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i would set it up like x + y = 1 = 5x  5y = 7 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x = 1  y 5(1  y) 5y = 7 then you'll know what y is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you know y then you can plug in y to first equation and find out what x is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15  5y 5y = 7 10y = 14 y = 14/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when you have two unknown (here x and y) then you always want to solve for x or y, then plug it into the other equation so you're working with just one unknown variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i get the 10 y part. buy what about the 5 and where did 14 come from?

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you try to get y on left and everything else on right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but you left 5 out. what did you do with it? and where did 14 come from?

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you move 5 to right side of = sign

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you want to get rid of 5 on left side so you add +5 to both side

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 5 disappears on left and +5 appears on right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. but that equals 12.

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whatever you do on left you MUST do same on right to keep equation same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know that. ahh seee. thaats why i was like huh? lol

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u got me confused rii there. its cool tho

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so plug in y= 12/10 to find x

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it doesn't matter if it's on top or bottom

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahhhhh i seee. so the answer is one solution.

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there's only one solution for y and one for x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know. but its asking me how many solutions. one two or no solutions

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have this other one. i have to find the ordered pairs. let me see if i can do it. 3x + 5y = 4 5x +5y = 60

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i'm not sure what the question is asking?

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there can be infinite combination of x and y and it'll give you those answers

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says give the ordered pairs that satisfies the system of equations

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well for the other one that your talking about.... it was asking WHAT IS THE NUMBER OF SOLUTIONS TO THE SYSTEM? and i put ONE SOLUTION

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0theres another choice that says INFINITELY MANY SOLUTIONS

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think it may be asking for just x and y like (x, y)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let me see if i can do the other one.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did 5x ( 3x + 5y ) +5y = 60

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no you have to solve for y first

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you plug it in like you did

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so thats how im suppose set it up rii?

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you first either solve for x or y

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then plug in the result to the second equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i want to solve for X

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do i set it up?

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15[(5y  4)(1/3)] +5y = 60 the bracket [ ] is the x

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you only have one variable y in your equation since we plugged in for x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait let me get this straightt....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now that we have our equation we have to distribute the 5 to the perenthesis (5y4) correct?

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can do that then divide everything by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you're not distributing since (1/3) is its own. you simply multiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what i shud have is [ (25y20) (1/3) ]

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[ (25y20) (1/3) ] + 5y = 60

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you have to distribute (1/3)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im a little confused. so right this is what i have...... [ (25y20) (1/3) ] + 5y = 60 5y  5y [ (20y 20) (1/3) ] = 60

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you don't want to move 5y to other side because you still have 25y

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you want to move 20(1/3) to right

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so multiply 20/2 times 1/3

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember we're trying to solve for y

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait ignore that.. typo

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so multiply 20/1 times 1/3 then combien 25y times 1/3 + 5y then combine like terms so you'd end up with 30y (1/3)

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you first distribute (1/3) to 25y and 20

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it's 25y(1/3) + 5y = 60 + 20(1/3)

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y(25(1/3) + 5) = 60 + 20(1/3) y = 60 + 20(1/3) / (25(1/3) + 5)

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it looks real messy b/c i didn't simplify anything

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y = 60 + 20(1/3)\div (25(1/3) + 5)\]

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now im gunna distribute 20 (1/3) and 25 (1/3)

M
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can multiply by (1/3) or just divide by 3

M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1np just remember to isolate x or y, whichever is easier. then plug that into the other equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank youu! but the bad thing is, that on my worksheet, theres different types of problems. they never stick to one thing.

M
