Stuck on this problem
Find values for m and b in the following system so that the solution to the system is (3,4)
5x+7y=b
mx+y=22
5(3) + 7(4) = b
b = 15 + 28 = 13
m(3) + 4 = 22
3m = 224
m = 18/3 = 6
Thank you Sanchi....I will use this as a template for solving my other problems like this.
no problem!
