14x+14y=30?
x + y = 14
now we use a method to find x and y? which do you like ^^ elimination? substitution?
the 1st one
awsome (so much easier) x + 5y = 30 x + y = 14 we subtract x from x vertically. 4y = 16
y=4
now i hope you can figure it out. once you find y sub y into the equation
isnt that for the substitution method?
nope
we use the elimination then we sub y into the equation
if we did substitution we would make y the subject then get y THEN we would sub y into equation to get x
which equation should i plug the 4 in for y?
any :)
x + y = 14 would just be easier though
ok ill go for that. I got 10 for x
good so we can conclude x = 10 and y = 4
srry i didn't get the 2nd equation when u asked :(
mhm what equation?
x + y = 14?
yea
well there is some $1 and $5 bills yea... and they add to 14. we said that $1 is x and $5 is y. so x + y is equal to 14.
ok
thank you!!
