    @Jack1 for ones like these: there is no parenthesis, or exponents, so I staret with the multiplication.. I want to get my y's to one side.. how do I do that? I divide them?

    i like to subtract first to isolate the one term on one side so 2x + 5y = −13 2x = -13 -5y x = -(13/2) - (5/2)y

    or if not, get them both in terms of 6x

    2x + 5y = -13 so 6x + 15y = -39 and 3x - 4y = -8 so 6x - 8y = -16 therefore 6x = -39 - 15y and 6x = -16 + 8y

    AH I thought so, u do them apart and I knew I took the 5 from that side

    2x + 5y = −13-------(1) 3x − 4y = −8 --------(2) in equation 1 2x=-13-5y x=-13-5y/2 put x in equation 2 3(-13-5y/2)-4y=-8 -39-15y/2-4y=-8 -39-15y-8y=-16 -23y=-16+39 -23y=23 y=-1 put y in equation 1 2x + 5y = −13 2x+5(-1)=-13 2x-5=-13 2x=-13+5 2x=-8 x=-4

    6x = -39 - 15y = -16 + 8y -39 - 15y = -16 + 8y -39 = -16 + 23y -23 = 23y -1 = y

    The next one I have I have to get the value of y.. is it the same way we get the value of x?

    exactly the same way, it doesn't matter if the term is called x or y or q, its all the same when using simultaneous equations

    You are not even teaching her the right thing.Also,You are very mean and you don't know how to respond to someone..when they ask you a question. I might link you this:http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct Next time if you're mean to me.I'll report you to Preetha. @Jack1

    so thats equation 1 in a form we can use now for equation 2: 2x − 6y = −14 change it so u get 10x on one side

    sorry, back to equation 1: it should be 10x = -22 + 6y, not 10x = -22 + 6, my bad now equation 2: 2x − 6y = −14 (times 5) 10x - 30y = -70 (add 30y to both sides) 10x - 30y + 30y = -70 + 30y 10x = -70 + 30y

  33. Jack1
    • one year ago

    so equation 1 is now 10x = -22 + 6y and equation 2 is now 10x = -70 + 30y so 10x = -22 + 6y = -70 + 30y -22 + 6y = -70 + 30y can u solve from here?
