I am trying to understand what to do here.. need help asap!! Thanks! M

Solve the following pair of simultaneous linear equations.
3x + 4y =5
2x + 2y =2
Select the option corresponds to the solution.
Select one:
x = 9 / 7, y = 2 / 7  x =  − 1, y = 2 x = 9 / 7, y =  − 2 / 7  x = 2, y =  − 1  x =  − 2 / 7, y = 9 / 7

    You could either solve the problem directly or try each of the x,y combinations to see which one satisfies the two equations.

    Note that
    3x + 4y = 5
    and
    4x + 4y = 4
    Thus
    x = -1

    There is only one choice with x = -1.

    Thanks I understand now!
