I have to solve systems of equations, and I chose the elimination method, but for some reason the last step isn't working. b) 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 Elimination Method 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 So with the elimination method you want to manipulate one equation so that when you add the two equations together one will cancel out. You have: 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 Eliminate one variable. Since the sum of the coefficients of y is 0, add the equations to eliminate y. 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 12x = 36 Now we can find: x = 3 In order to solve for y, take the value for x and substitute it back into either one of the original equations. 5(3) + 3y = 16 15 + 3y = 16

Okay. The equation is: 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 I used the elimination method of solving systems to solve it. So with the elimination method you want to manipulate one equation so that when you add the two equations together one will cancel out. You have: 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 Eliminate one variable. Since the sum of the coefficients of y is 0, add the equations to eliminate y. 7x – 3y = 20 5x + 3y = 16 12x = 36 Now we can find: x = 3 In order to solve for y, take the value for x and substitute it back into either one of the original equations. 5(3) + 3y = 16 15 + 3y = 16

your answer should be x=3 y=1/3

A fraction for y?
hba
  • hba
15+3y=16 1)subract both sides by 15 2)divide both sides by 3
hba
  • hba
There can be a fraction and you can always check by putting the (x,y) value in your orignal equation and checking If, LHS=RHS then your answer is correct :)
