Linear equations anyone? 5x + y = 61 y= 3x - 35 Halp?
I'm so confused. xD
So you're trying to solve a system of linear equations? (Let's check: 2 equations and 2 unknowns - yep this is doable).
Yessir. I tried to solve it myself but it became really bizarre really quickly.
\[5x+(3x-35)=61\] <-- so we'll substitute the second equation's definition of y for the y variable in the first equation. Next collect like terms and solve (divide through to coefficient) for x.
OK what do you get?
So x equals 12? So, then we plug it in to find y?
And y equals one! Oh my goodness, thank you so much!
Thank you so much! Oh, bless!
