I invest $14,000, part is 15% and part is 2% if the total interest at the end of the year is $1060, how much did I invest at 15% I think you mean that part (let'say x) earns 15% and the rest earns 2% Solve thes two equations simultaneously: x + y = 14,000 0.15 x + 0.02 y...

how would f(x)=-2+-3 look like on a graph I assume you made a typo, and you meant to type f(x)=-2x+(-3) or f(x)=-2x-3 that would be a straight line with a y-intercept of -3 and a slope of -2

Wrtie an equation of a line passing through (6,10) and (6,-6 y= mx + b Put in the first set of points: 10=6m + b Do the same for the second point. Then, you have two equations, two unknowns. Solve by substitution.

When I subsitute 5x+3 into the equation I get x=1/5 and y=2 is this correct? Try plugging in your final values for x and y into both of the original equations. If and only if the equations are true, then your answers are correct.

please solve x+5y=10 -2x-10y=-20 Since the second equation can be obtained from the first (by multiplying both sides by -2), they are not independent and there is no unique solution. There are an infinite number of x,y combinations that are solutions.

I need a step by step explanation on how to add these two equations 2x+3y=1 5x+3y=16 Subtract the first equation from the second. (Subtract left and right sides separately). This gives you 3x = 15 Then divide both sides by 3. x = 5 Pretty easy, huh? After you have x, you can ...

Rewrite the equation as a function -3x+4y=11 If you want to consider y as a function of x, then y = (1/4)(3x +11) One can also write x as a function of y. x = (1/3)(4y - 11)

I made a mistake in my problem . can you take me step by step on how to solve this problem 2x+3y=6 (forx) 2x+3y=6 (forx) (subtract 3y to both sides) 2x=6-3y (divide both sides by 2) x=3-3/2y This what I got.
