Got one more type I have read on and don't understand 2x - 5y = -1 x -3y = -3
What are you trying to solve for?
Find a solution to each system by the subsitution method.
Try solving for y on the first equation and then replace what you found y to equal in the first equation into the second equation.. make sense?
I think so I'll try it.... wish me luck
I might be too late here but the far easier method is to solve for x in the second equation and sub that into the first equation
oh ok thank you!!!! Ill try that way too
yea anytime you are using substitution and you have an equation where one of the variables has a coefficient of 1 then use that equation to solve for that variable that way you will not run into fractions as much.
Thank you!!! You have been so helpful!!!!
