Question and answer
Solve the following system of equations, using the substitution method: 4x - 5y = 3 8x + 15y = - 24
4x - 5y = 3 8x + 15y = - 24 4x - 5y = 3; -5y = -4x + 3; (-5y = -4x + 3)/(-5); y = 4/5x - 3/5; 8x + 15(4/5x - 3/5) = - 24; 8x + 12x - 9 = -24; 20x - 9 = -24; 20x = -24 + 9; 20x = -15; x = -15/20 = -3/4; 4(-3/4) - 5y = 3; -3 - 5y = 3; -5y = 3 + 3; -5y = 6; y = -6/5; The solution set is (-3/4, -6/5)

The solutions for the systems x + 2y = 4, 2x - y = 3 are x = 2, y = 1.
Multiply x + 2y = 4 by -2:
-2x - 4y = -8;
(-2x - 4y = -8) + (2x - y = 3):
-5y = -5;
y = 1;
Solve for x:
x + 2(1) = 4;
x + 2 = 4;
x = 4 - 2;
x = 2

The solution set for the systems x + 2y = 4, 2x - y = 3 is: (2, 1)

(x + 2y = 4) * (-2);
-2x - 4y = -8;
(-2x - 4y = -8) + (2x - y = 3);
-5y = -5;
y = 1;
x + 2 = 4;
x = 4 - 2;
x = 2

5x + 3y = -7
7x - 3y = 55
adding up equations the result is:
12x = 48
x = 48/12 = 4
5(4) + 3y = -7
20 + 3y = -7
3y = -7 - 20 = -27
y = -27/3 = -9
The solution for the system 5x + 3y = -7 7x - 3y = 55 is (4, -9)
