Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When solving systems of equations, how do you determine what method to use? For the next can you please help me solve it and what all you did please

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here is the problem 6x  4y = 54 9x + 2y = 69

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You generally look at what method will be the easiest/fastest to do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2With that equation, you can see that the y coefficients are two and 4. So, it looks like a minor effort to just multiply the one equation by two, and adding them together to eliminate the yvariable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would do elimination but Cramer's rule is one of the fastest way to solve the system

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure. First multiply the second equation by 2: x2: 9x + 2y = 69 > 18x + 4y = 138 List the two equations and add: 6x 4y = 54 18x + 4y = 138 __________________ 12x + 0y = 84 12x = 84 x = 7 Now sub x back into any of the equations: 6(7)  4y = 54 42  4y = 54 4y =  12 y = 3 so x=7 and y = 3
