I can only guess you mean 5% and 10% 1.05 x = 2142 so x = 2040 then do your 10% 1.1 (2040) = 2244

algebra
the first way is brute force finding where two lines hit The second way is called "elimination". The third way is called "substitution". They are all ways o find the intersection of those lines.

or substitute x = 1 - 3y use that in the second one -3(1-3y) -3y=15 -3 + 9 y -3 y = 15 6 y = 18 y = +3 again

algebra
there are lots of other ways, like add the two equations +1 x + 3 y = 1 -3 x - 3 y = 15 ---------------- add -2 x = 16 x = -8 then go back and get y
April 14, 2016

algebra
first equation is the line y = -(1/3) x + 1/3 second equation (-x-y=5) is the line y = - x - 5 so -x-5 = -(1/3)x + 1/3 2/3 x = -16/3 x = -8 then y = 3 ------------------- check -8+9 = ? 1 yes +24 - 9 = ? 15 yes

Maths (Proof)
If you can squish it, it is no longer regular. The sides may be the same but not the angles. Think about a square with hinges at the corners if you squish it into a parallelogram, it still has 4 equal sides but is no longer a regular polygon.

sqrt (2^2 + 5^2) = sqrt 29 agreed the distance from -5,5 to 5,5 is 10 the distance from 0,-7 to 7,0 is 7 Oh my :( not really regular I guess you will have to make a model with 8 equal sides and see if you can sqwish it :) I think you can.
