Solve by the elimination method.

5r-3s=2

3r 5s =42

r=-40

is this right.

4x+5y=7

5x-4y=5

Decide whteher the pair of line is parallel, perpindular, or n

I said is was parallel. Tell me if this right.

in your first question, you found only the one variable, you still have to find s

Besides that, you have a typo in the second equation.

in your second problem,

the slope of the first equation is -4/5

the slope of the second one is 5/4

notice they are negative reciprocals of each other.

What did you learn about that situation?
