    All of us probably know one-variable equations. But, the two-variable linear equations may confuse people. In this tutorial, solving two-variable systems would be explained by substitution and elimination. \(\LARGE \color{MidnightBlue}{\text {SUBSTITUTION}}\) \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow 0.45x +0.65y = 18.55 }\) \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow x + y = 35 }\) Okay, now let's take any of the variables. Let's say x for the sake of convenience. Now, we just have to solve for x by subracting y from both sides, and we get: \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow x = 35 - y }\) Now, we'll replace x with 35 - y, and we get: \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow 0.45(35 - y) + 0.65y = 18.55 }\) Now, we can solve the equation easily. \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\text{ELIMINATION} }\) This one is again easy. You have to seek the possible ways. Let's solve the same system again! So, let's multiply the equation 'x + y = 35' by 0.45(both sides). We get: \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow 0.45x + 0.45y = 15.75 }\) Subtract both equations: \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow (0.45x - 0.45x) + (0.65y - 0.45y) = 19.25 }\) \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow 0.20y = 19.25 }\) \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow y = 96.25 }\) Now, we can just solve for x because we know the value of y.

    So we can copy and paste a link and tell the asker to come back if he/she still had more questions after reading the tutorials @satellite73

    your tutorial is fine as is, but its missing a few important pointers. The "why" it works would be helpful. And also if you could explain the 3 possible results that can occur. The notion that we can find infinite or no consistent solution is something that tends to confuse people. And the knowledge of why these outcomes are possible explains those mysteries.

    This tutorial might turn out to be quite helpful for someone searching the internet for "how to solve simultaneous equations". @amistre64 I believe parthkohli prepared it for high school level, therefore he decided to exclude that part.

    @2bornot2b I don't know if it's high school or not, but considering that the person knows one-variable linear equations, I posted it.

    You forgot one important thing. First of all, you said system of equations. You need to limit that down to first degree 2 varibles determined. Second of all, you forgot cramers rule. Other than that, good enough.

    Did you know that you can reduce AES encryption down to a "system of equations"? You claimed to solve that, xD

    @inkyvoyd Yes, about the Cramer's rule, I have written on the top line that I will explain it using only substitution and elimination. You see, these are two simple methods. It'd have taken hours if I'd used the cramer's rule and graphs.

    Actually, cramer's rule was the fastest way to program the system of equation's solution.

    since they said the good comments already i'll be the "simon cowell" from a tutor to another one. 1) You should solve the SUBSTITUTION and ELIMINATION methods thoroughly not just end in the middle 2) You did not state WHY you multiplied 0.45 in the ELIMINATION method. 3) Inconsistency. In the ELIMINATION method you solved for y. You did not solve for y in the SUBSTITUTION method though. and again, you cut in the middle 4) You did not prove that the results of the SUBSTITUTION method and the ELIMINATION method were the same. that are all my bad comments...otherwise it was good :) deserved the medals ^_~

    one more thing... "Okay, now let's take any of the variables. Let's say x for the sake of convenience. Now, we just have to solve for x by subracting y from both sides" be more specific...you did not state which you used, if first equation or second equation..although that is pretty obvious when looked at the next step, these things should still not be omitted. @inkyvoyd honestly...a lot of us do not know what you're saying :p haha no offense
