Solve the system of equations:

First:4x-2y=2
Second:y=-4x-7

4x-2(-4x-7)=2
4x+8x+14=2
12x+14=2
subtract 14 from both sides
x=-1

y=-4(-1)-7
y=4-7
y=-3

(-1,-3)

    2x + 1/2 = x/2 + 1/3 Subtract the x/2 from both sides to get 2x + 1/2 - x/2 = + 1/3 Now subtract 1/2 from both sides to get 2x + - x/2 = 1/3 - 1/2 Then combine terms on both sides and solve for x. Subtract the x/2 from both sides to …

    5x -3 = 11 + 12x combine like figures add 3 to both sides to remove the 3 5x= 14+ 12x Now I get confused. If I remove the 12x I have to subtract 12x from 5x which gives me an answer of -7x=14 would the correct answer thus be x= -2?
