On the problem 9x+7y=4
x=23-4y
solve by substitution

Do you mean to put 9 in the place of x=23-4y (9x=23-4y)

  • algebra -

    It would look like this...9(23-4y)+7y=4
    Then you simplify
    9*23=207
    9*-4y=-36y
    so you now have
    207-36y+4y
    Combine like terms
    -36y+4y=-32
    -32y=4
    Finally you divide
    the end reslut is y=-8

    Ok so you're supposed to solve the system by method of substitution. And the problem is: -2/3x + y = 2 2x - 3y = 6 So i put y= 2/3x into the second equation which looks like: 2x - 3(2/3x + 2) = 6 and then 2x-2x-6=6 So like everything …
