Explain, in complete sentences, how you would use the elimination method to solve the following system of equations. Provide the solution to the system. 6x – 5y = 4 9x + 4y = –17
In elimination method, you will eliminate one variable from one of the equations to form a single variable eqn, which can be solved outrightly...
1st eqn *4 => 24x-20y=16 2nd eqn*5=> 45x+20y=-85
adding these 2 eqns, y gets eliminated... 69x=-69 x=-1 substitute the value of x into any of the 2 eqns to obtain y...
