set them equal to eachother, you will end up with x8 = 8x 71, solve for x

then what do you do? im confused?
 one year ago

yoyointegralsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
start by adding 71 to both sides

close, divide by the coefficient of the x

whats the coefficient?

so I have 8x71=1x=8 explain to me what I do from here? I subtract 71 from both sides here?

i would start by subtracting \(x\) from both sides, to put all the terms with \(x\) on the left

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in other words get \(7x71=8\)

solution of a set of equation means dw:1364000497143:dw find the point P(x,y) which satisfies all the equations.

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then add 71 to both sides to get \[7x=63\] and finally divide both sides by \&\)
 one year ago

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that, is , finally divide both sides by \(7\)
 one year ago

airrbaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the answer for x=9?
 one year ago

airrbaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so how would I find y now since I know x?
 one year ago

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you replace \(x\) by \(9\) in either equation
 one year ago

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[y=x8\] \[y=98=1\]

omg thank you so much! you're amazing!

krissywattsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
set them side by side like this: x8=8x71 subtract 8 on both sides and add 8 to both sides now you should get 7x=63

yw (if you meant me, if not, then yw from everyone )

krissywattsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now plug byour answer back into the first equation to get y
