5x=1/2y-1, find value of X; 1/4y=10x-1, find value of Y (use substitution)

  • Algebra - ,

    I assume you mean:
    5 x = (1/2) y - 1
    (1/4) y = 10 x - 1
    and we are to solve the two equations simultaneously using substitution and get for x first

    so solve the first for x as a function of y

    x = (1/10) y - 1/5

    use that x in the second equation to get y

    (1/4) y = 10 [ (1/10)y -1/5 ] - 1

    y = 4 y - 8 - 4

    3 y = 12

    y = 4

    Now use that value of y to get x
    5 x = (1/2) 4 - 1
    x = 1/5
