Help for Metal Please
Consider the following pair of equations:
−x − y = −5
y = x + 1
If the two equations are graphed, at what point do the lines representing the two equations intersect?
(−2, 3)
(3, −2)
(2, 3)
(3, 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are two equations in this question we call x y =5 x+y=5 ...........eq#1 since, signs are cancelled from each side y=x+1............eq#2 now put the value of y of eq#2 into eq#1 at the place y it would be x +x+1 =5 2x = 51 2x=4 x=2 now put x=2 in eq#2 you will get the value of y y= 2+1 y=3 so answer will be (x,y)=(2,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yx =5 (1) multiply by minus to get: (y) = (x5) which becomes y + x= 5 so you have y = x 5 (1) and y=x +1 (2) Now to things that are equal to the same thing are equal to each other so: x5 =x+1 can you solve that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hey do you want to know a faster trick to complete this...like...just plug in your answer option into the equation... xy= 5 ......(2)3=? y=x+1 .... y=(2)+3...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes and here is an even faster way: yx = 5 y=x+1  yx = 5 yx = 1  Add them and the y's cancel, leaving 2x = 4 =>x=2
