Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ (x+y) }{ (2x3y) } = \frac{ 2 }{ 9 }\] is the problem this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Can you just take a picture of it and upload it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Oh, that makes sense, they are two different equations right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so basically i just use distributive property?

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok so you have two equations, \[x+y=2\] \[2x3y=9\] No not quite, so does it ask for any methods, like elimination, substitution, matrices?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it asks what the solution is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, we can use any method then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im gonna give you a medal just cuz youve been the most help ive had since ive gotten on here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Lets use substitution, so to do this problem, we want to isolate one of the variables in one of the equations and plug it into the second equation, that will help us find the x value and then we can go back and find the y value. We could also take your options in to our advantage and do it the lazy way but I don't think you will learn that way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok I think drawing it out will make more sense, first you want to label the equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1435438438884:dw Hey, yes I did thanks :) So lets do this problem now, pick one of the equations and one of the variables to isolate in that equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Haha, actually lets pick one as it's a bit more simple to deal with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now lets say we solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1435438607278:dw so far so good?

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok great, now we want to take this expression and plug it into the second equation, as such dw:1435438692346:dw notice how we have removed x from the equation now we can simply solve for the y!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Could you try solving for y? Don't worry about making mistakes long as you're attempting that's awesome.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, it's being multiplied so you have to distribute

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Not quite, dw:1435438982368:dw does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now you want to simplify it, collect like terms and solve for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it be 23y or 23y?????

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm not sure what you mean but dw:1435439329301:dw so y will be?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is 23y i got 9=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok :), now just solve for y? One step needed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0soo the only answer with y=1 is b...would that be the answer?

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, y = 1, but you should make sure to check with x just in case you did not make any mistakes, lets take equation 1 and plug y in it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1435439549600:dw so our solution is (3,1) yup!
