anonymous one year ago If x=3t and y=5t-2, what is the direct algebraic relationship/equation?

1. DanJS

You are looking to find out y, in terms of x? y(x)

2. DanJS

solve both for t =.. then you can set them equal, and solve for what you want

3. anonymous

So.. for the first one it would be t=x/3?

4. DanJS

yes

5. DanJS

second is t = (y+2)/5 set both t's equal since they are the same, then you eliminate the t variable,

6. DanJS

$\frac{ y+2 }{ 5 }=\frac{ x }{ 3 }$ solve for whatever you need

thanks
