Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have a general idea of how to solve it I'm just not completely sure. I mostly just end up putting the steps in the wrong order

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok show me how you solve it then :) show me what order you would put the steps in.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I'm pretty sure you have to combine the equations then distribute

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm an easier approach would be elimination are you familiar with the method?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(x + y = 2) 2x – 3y = 9 Step 1: Distribute the 2 2(x + y = 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question gives me a list of steps, and I'm supposed to put them in the correct order, so what I really need is someone to help me figure out the sequence of steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is there a way you can paste them on to this post?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a. subtract 3x+3y=6 (obtained in step one) from 2x3y=9 (given) to solve for x b. substitute the value of x in the first equation (x+y=2) to get y=1 c. The solution for the systems of equations is (3,1) d. x=15 e. The solution for the systems of equations is (15,13) f. add 3x+3y=6(obtained in step one) to 2x3y=9(given), and solve for x g. x=3 h. substitute the value of x in the first equation (x+y=2) to get y=13 i. multiply the first equation by 3: 3(x+y)=3(2) 3X+3Y=6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you agree that 3y plus 3y = 0y ?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what we have to do is multiply everything in equation 1 by 3 to go from x + y = 2 to 3x + 3y = 6

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2new system of equations 3x + 3y = 6 2x – 3y = 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that would be the first step? multiply everything by 3?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now you add the equations the 3y and 3y add to 0 and go away

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that leaves just x to solve for

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.25x = 15 > x = ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you plug that x value into any equation with x & y in it, then solve for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so after adding the two equations what is the next step? I posted the options above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2give it a shot and tell me what the order would be (based off what we've done so far)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question doesn't ask for me to solve it. It just wants me to put the steps in order

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you actually do have to solve it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0based on what we've done I'd say the next step would be x=3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then substitute the value of x in the first equation to get y=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes so the solution is (3,1)
