you there?
Yes
ok, lets go through the steps
Guess its wrong then
ok we have 2 equtions
x + y = 35 121x + 83y = 3741
are those the equations you got?
Yes
great
isolate x in the first equation x=35-y
plug in 35-y for x in the second equation
x=8,072.6
121(35-y) + 83y = 3741
I miss calculated 121x-83x.. I wrote 30 down instead of 38
ok
tell me what you get
x=8072.6 and y= 8037 correct?
nope
-.-
Do you understand how i got to 121(35-y) + 83y = 3741
I explained it above
-83(x+y)=35 121x+83y=3741 -83x-83y=-2,905 --------------- 38x = -2,905 --- ----- 30 30 x=-96.83
why -83(x+y)=35?
it should just be x+y=35
Thats what my examples are from MyMathLab
It solves that way.. I have no clue what you were showing me
I have the answer, -83(x+y)=35 doesn't make any sense
-96.83+y=35 + + y=131.83
it says only 35 people were hired, how can there be 131.83 laborers?
Do you want me to show you how i got the answer?
Hold on.. Let me start over
These are the equations x + y = 35 121x + 83y = 3741
Yes
isolate x in the first equation x=35-y
plug in 35-y for x in the other equation
121(35-y) + 83y = 3741
solve for y
x=22 and y= 13 ... Do you want me to show you how i got it?
thats what i got, good job
to see if these are right, plug them back into the original equations
-83(x-y)=35 the -83 is meant to cancel out the 83y in the other equation
Im good
22+13 = 35
first equation works
121(22)+83(13)=3741
I already got an A on my test, Thanks for you help. It was a calculation error on my end.
those the right answers
k, don't forget to medal
Thanks for your help.
no problem
