Pleeeese help!

Use the substitution method to solve each linear system:

-x+3y+1=0
3x-y+1=0


4x-3y=-13
-2x+y=4

Please help, thanks:):)!!!!

  • TO ANY MATH HELPERS - ,

    1)

    x= -.5
    y= -.5

    2)

    x=.5
    y=5

  • TO ANY MATH HELPERS - ,

    1.
    from the 1st equation: x = 3y+1
    into the 2nd:
    3(3y+1) - y +1 = 0
    9y + 3 - y +1 = 0
    8y = -4
    y = -1/2
    sub into 2nd:
    3x - (-1/2) + 1 = 0
    3x = -3/2
    x = -1/2

    Do #2 the same way
    from the 2nd: y = 2x+4
    etc

    (Just stating the answers is not acceptable and serves no purpose)

    Oh thank you to both helpers!!! I have understood how to do it now:)
