## mangalover15 3 years ago have this question that i don't even know where to start at...attachment in comment

1. mangalover15

2. carl51

x=8 and y=(-1)

3. carl51

Plug in these numbers and they should be right

4. mangalover15

can you kind of explain to me how it's done?

5. carl51

Well i just did trial and error.

6. mangalover15

oh..okay , thanks anyways ^_^

7. carl51

No Problem

8. mangalover15

carl51 sovled it for me...but i really want to know how...

9. XxPainWsxX

r u there?

10. phi

I would find a common denominator for the fractions. 6 is the common denominator.

11. phi

mult the first term of the 1st eq by 3/3 and the 2nd term by 2/2

12. phi

can you do that?

13. XxPainWsxX

explain him better?

14. XxPainWsxX

can u give me these points phi?

15. XxPainWsxX

16. XxPainWsxX

u have (x + 2)/2 - (y + 4)/3 = 4 now find a common denominator for the fractions, pick 6 then u get this 3 x - 6 - 2 y - 8 = 24 (1) there is your first ecuation now with

17. XxPainWsxX

(x + y)/2 = 1/2 + (x - y/3)

18. XxPainWsxX

pick 6 again then we have 3 x + 3 y = 3 + 2 x - 2 y (2)

19. XxPainWsxX

with (1) u get x = -5 y + 3 now use (2 ) with ur new x then u have - 15 y + 9 - 2 y = 26 u got y = -1 now use y = -1 in (2) u get x - 5 = 3 x is 8

20. XxPainWsxX

all clear?

i really like ur pic anime is awesome
