anonymous one year ago What is the value of the x variable in the solution to the following system of equations? 3x + 2y = 8 2x + 3y = 2 A. 4 B. −2 C. x can be any number as there are infinitely many solutions to this system D. There is no x value as there is no solution to this system

1. LynFran

do elimination or substitution method to find out.... if u use elimination method ... mutiply the 2nd equation through out by $\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }$

I still don't understand D:

3. LynFran

so ur 2nd eq become $3x+\frac{ 9 }{ 2 }y=3$

4. LynFran

now take away eq 1 and the just found eq.|dw:1438031347985:dw|

Thank you!

6. LynFran

now sub y=-2 into eq. 1 to solve for x
