6.03] If you wanted to eliminate the y variable by adding the two equations in the following system, what could be your first step?
3x + y = 6
4x − 5y = 10
Multiply the first equation by 5.
Multiply the first equation by −5.
Multiply the first equation by −4.
Add the two equations together.
Question 5 (Multiple Choice Worth 4 points)
[6.02] For the following system, if you isolated x in the second equation to use the Substitution Method, what expression would you substitute into the first equation?
3x + y = 8
−x − y = −7
−y + 7
−y − 7
y + 7
y − 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16.03) You would multiply the first equation by 5. This is because: (1) 3x + y = 6 (Multiply by 5 = (2) ) + 4x − 5y = 10 (2) 15x +5y = 30 + 4x  5y = 10 (add x's, y's and 30 + 40 = (3) ) (3) 19x +0y = 40 (times y by 0 = (4) ) (4) 19x =40

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1[6.02] y +7 This is because: (1) −x − y = −7 (leave x on its own and move y to the other side to get (2) ) (2) x = 7 + y (multply (7+y) by negative () to get (3) ) (3) x = 7  y (switch 7 and y around to get the answer that is required in choices (4) ) (4) x = y + 7 (answer)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The answer would be A) Multiply the first equation by 5. because (3x + y = 6)5 4x − 5y = 10 15x + 5y = 30 + 4x  5y = 10 19x = 40 (19x)/19 = (10)/19 x\[\approx0.53\]
