What values of x and y make the equations true? I'll post a pic of equations in comments. Please help!

when 2 matrices are equal, their corresponding elements are also equal! :)

hartnn (hartnn):

so, 2x+3 = -3 can you find x from here ?

hartnn (hartnn):

3 = 4y -5 can you find y from here ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

So would it be y=2?

hartnn (hartnn):

yes! y=2 :) and x ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and x=-3?

hartnn (hartnn):

absolutely correct :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yay! :) That was easier than I thought. Thank you!

hartnn (hartnn):

yes, it was :) ans welcome ^_^
