Question and answer
Solve by method of substitution 6a=2-b 6a=6-b
6a=2-b_6a=6-b Since b is on the right-hand side of the equation, switch the sides so it is on the left-hand side of the equation. -b+2=6a_6a=-b+6 Since 2 does not contain the variable to solve for, [ move it to the right-hand side of the equation by subtracting 2 from both sides. -b=-2+6a_6a=-b+6 Move all terms not containing b to the right-hand side of the equation. -b=6a-2_6a=-b+6 Multiply each term in the equation by -1. -b*-1=6a*-1-2*-1_6a=-b+6 Multiply -b by -1 to get b. b=6a*-1-2*-1_6a=-b+6 Simplify the right-hand side of the equation by multiplying out all the
terms. b=-6a+2_6a=-b+6 Replace all occurrences of b with the solution found by solving the last equation for b. In this case, the value substituted is -6a+2. b=-6a+2_6a=-(-6a+2)+6 Multiply -1 by each term inside the parentheses. b=-6a+2_6a=6a-2+6 Add 6 to -2 to get 4. b=-6a+2_6a=6a+4 Since 6a contains the variable to solve for, move it to the left-hand side of the equation by subtracting 6a from both sides. b=-6a+2_6a-6a=4 Since 6a and -6a are like terms, add -6a to 6a to get 0. b=-6a+2_0=4 Since 0 is not equal 4, there are no solutions. No Solution ]
