7x+8y=25

9x+10Y=35

- math -
**Damon**, Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 4:05pm7x+8y=25 times 5 is 35 x + 40 y = 125

9x+10y=35 times 4 is 36 x + 40 y = 140

++++++++++++++++++++++now subtract

-1 x + 0 = -15

so

x = 15

then

7(15) + 8 y = 25

105 + 8 y = 25

8 y = -80

y = -10

**Alex**, Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 4:22pmthanks but y\why did you multiply it by 4 and 5 at the begging

- math -
**Damon**, Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 6:19pmBecause 40 is the least common multiple of 8 and 10

I could have used the first times 9 and the second times 7 and eliminated x.
