Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First write out the coefficient matrix:\[A=\left[\begin{matrix}5 & 1 \\ 2 & 4\end{matrix}\right]\]name the vector of the righthandsides::\[b=\left(\begin{matrix}3 \\ 7\end{matrix}\right)\]The xdeterminant is found by replacing the first column of the coefficient matrix A with b and taking the determinant. The ydeterminant is found by replacing the second column of A by b and taking the determinant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in general we have for\[A=\left[\begin{matrix}a_{11} & a_{12} \\ a_{21} & a_{22}\end{matrix}\right]\]\[b=\left(\begin{matrix}b_1 \\ b_2\end{matrix}\right)\]that the xdeterminant is\[D_x=\det\left[\begin{matrix}b_{1} & a_{12} \\ b_{2} & a_{22}\end{matrix}\right]\]and the ydeterminant is\[D_y=\det\left[\begin{matrix}a_{11} & b_{1} \\ a_{21} & b_{2}\end{matrix}\right]\]
