Algebra 1 HELP PLZ!!!

Use the Substitution method to solve the system of equations.

x + y = -4
x - y = 2

PLz HELP!!

I'M NOT BOB BUT I CAN HELP

ITS REALLY SIMPLE ALGEBRA

X + Y = -4......EQN 1
X - Y = 2.....EQN 2

From EQN 2, let
x = 2 + y

Substitute that into EQN 1

x - y = -4
(2+y) + y= -4
2 + 2y= -4
2y = -4-2
y = -6/2
y = -3

SUBST y= -3 in EQN 2

x -(-3) = 2
x + 3 = 2
x = 2-3

x= -1

Therefore

y = -3 and x = -1


x + y = -4
(2+y) + y= -4
2 + 2y= -4
2y = -4-2
y = -6/2
y = -3


Thanks,what abou this one?

Use the Substitution method to solve the system of equations.

x + y = 10
y = x + 8

Thanks,what abou this one?

Use the Substitution method to solve the system of equations.

x + y = 10
y = x + 8

just use the ones she helped you with before.

minus y on each side of one equation (IE x+y=10 is now x=10-y.

then fill in the 10-y for x in the second equation.

May be 2

help


x+y=10
y=x+8
I think it goes like this
x+x+8=10
2x+8=10
2x=10-8
2x=2 divide both sides by 2
x=1
1+y=10
y=10-1
y=9
x+y=10 replaced 1+9=10
y=x+8 replaced 9=1+8
was this a real problem to solve, or are you just testing me?

x+y=10
y=x+8
I think it goes like this
x+x+8=10
2x+8=10

x=1

x+y=10
y=x+8
I think it goes like this
x+x+8=10 (y is replaced by x+8)
2x+8=10 (add the x's to get 2x)
2x=10-8 (move 8 to the other side)
2x=2 divide both sides by 2
x=1
1+y=10
y=10-1
y=9
x+y=10 replaced 1+9=10
y=x+8 replaced 9=1+8

x + 2 = -4 x - (-4) = 2
x + 2 - 2 = -4 - 2 x - (-4) + 4 = 2 + 4
x = 6 x = 6

checked: checked:
(-6) + 2 = -4 (6) - (-4) = 2
-4 = -4 2 = 2
