What is the solution for this system of linear equations? I'm stuck,
y=2x+1
y+7x17
so 2x+1=7x17
??

if the second one is \(y=7x17\) then yes

add \(2x\) to both sides add \(17\) to both sides divide both sides by \(9\) will get you \(x\)

if you want me to check your answer, let me know

so I get 1=9x17 then 9 divided 18 = 2? so x=2?

how would I find y with this one?

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then of course you have to find \(y\) but since you know \(x=2\) that should be easy

replace \(x\) by \(2\) in either equation if you want to check to make sure your answer is right, put \(2\) for \(x\) in both and see if you get the same number

is y=15? or y=3? I got a different answer when I pluged 2 into both problems /:

should be the same lets check

\[y=2x+1\] \[y=2\times 2+1=4+1=3\]

\[y=7x17\] \[y=7\times 217=1417=3\]

so you should get \(y=3\) for both, i am not exactly sure how you got the 15
