Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.46x – 5y = 5 3x + 5y = 4 if you add these equations together, we can get rid of the y's.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Or that works too ;P 6+3=? 5+4=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so by solving for x we can place x = ? into one of the equations and solve for y xD I'm just finding the best method and seeing that 5y and 5y is already there, why not cancel them out first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I want to see if you understand the concepts.. so can you please add 6x – 5y = 5 3x + 5y = 4 together and solve for x? @elmo23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4close 9x=9 (divide both sides by 9) x = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so now we can just plug in x = 1 into one of our equations...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4let's plug in x = 1 in here 3x + 5y = 4 so we have 3(1)+5y=4 3+5y=4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so we need to solve for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so subtract 3 on both sides (first step) and then divide both sides by 5 (second step)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.43+5y=4 3 3 5y=1 y= 1/5 correct so x = 1 and y = 1/5 we can check that these values are correct by plugging them back into the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yeah, but the question isn't asking to put it in order paired form which is (1, 1/5) so we can just leave it as x = 1 and y = 1/5 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i need to put that as the answer ? or no

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yes just put x = 1 and y = 1/5. I'll plug the values back in the equations to prove that we have found the right values of x and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.46x – 5y = 5 3x + 5y = 4 so for x = 1 and y = 1/5 \[6(1)5(\frac{1}{5})=5\] \[6(\frac{5}{5})=5\] \[61=5\] \[5=5\] 3x + 5y = 4 \[3(1)+5(\frac{1}{5})=4\] \[3+(\frac{5}{5})=4\] \[3+1=4\] \[4=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nick works two jobs to pay for college. He tutors for $15 per hour and also works as a bag boy for $8 per hour. Due to his class and study schedule, Nick is only able to work up to 20 hours per week but must earn at least $150 per week. If t represents the number of hours Nick tutors and b represents the number of hours he works as a bag boy, which system of inequalities represents this scenario? t + b greater than or equal to 20 15t + 8b = 150 t + b less than or greater to 20 15t + 8b greater than or equal to 150 t + b less than or greater to 20 15t + 8b less than or greater to 150 None of the systems shown represent this scenario.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I keep getting this t+b = 20 b=bag boy hours t=tutor hours 15t+8b = 150 We know he earns %15 per hour for the tutoring job and $8 for bag boy in total he earns $150 We know this but since none match it would be none of the scienerios
