Really need help! Been trying to solve for a while. 1. Solve the system by using a table. 3y=4x+7 , -4x-4y=28. These are the possible solutions:(–4, –3),(–3, –4), (4, 3),(3, 4). 2.Solve by graphing. -3x-y=-10, 4x-4y=8. possible solutions:(-1,3), (3-1), (1,3), (3,1)

    I think September is your answer for the second problem

    your estimate is as good as any haha. I have no clue so even an educated guess is better than nothing

    I honestly just suck horribly at solving systems of any sort x.x

    I answered it that way by reproducing the pattern of increase in the revenue and expense columns--that is, by adding differences in a row. Does that sound legitimate?

    I think I can solve the system, but I'm not sure what is meant by table. Is it all right if you use substitution and elimination?

    I would just really like some help with the 1st two because there are lot's of other questions like them, including on upcoming tests. That I really don't want to get wrong :/

    Yeah that's what I was trying to do. I however looked up solving solutions on google and it showed a way to do it where you used a graph to figure out where the two lines crossed. It didn't make sense with my equation though.

    \[-3x-y=-10\]\[ 4x-4y=8\] first equation is the same as \(y=-3x+10\) so you can replace \(y\) in the second equation by \(-3x+10\) with judicious use of parentheses you get \[4x-4(-3x+10)=8\] and now you have one equation and one variable to solve

    you get \[4x+12x-40=8\] \[16x-40=8\] \[16x=48\] \[x=48\div 16=3\]

    As long as it end up with an x and a y and they are one of the options above I really don't understand why it matters so much how we got it haha. I suppose in some cases it really matters but.. Thanks satellite that makes sense. I'll try writing it out.

    now that you have \(x=3\) you can replace \(x\) by 3 in either equation to solve for \(y\)

    for example we know \(y=-3x+10\) and we know \(x=3\) making \(y=-3\times 3+10=-9+10=1\)

    solving by graphing is too much work, and besides, if the answer is \((-\frac{1}{7}, \frac{5}{7})\) for example you will never know it from the graph

    yes, sometimes math (especially this kind) is hateful that is why they invented computers for example, here is the answer to the first one http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=+3y%3D4x%2B7+%2C+-4x-4y%3D28
