**Reiny**, Monday, April 27, 2009 at 6:23pmnone of your equation answers are correct.

I will #3 for you then follow the same method to do the rest

3. y=x+7

x+2y= -21

sub the first into the second:

x + 2(x+7) = -21

x + 2x + 14 = -21

3x = -35

x = -35/3

now sub that back into the first

y = -35/3 + 7 = -35/3 + 21/3 = -14/3

check:

in #1

LS = y = -14/3

RS = x+7 = -35/3 + 7 = -14/3

in #2

LS = x+2y = -35/3 + 2(-14/3) = -21

RS = -21

now work each one out the same way, and check your answer the same way.
