Solve using the substitution method. Show your work. If the system has no solution or an infinite number of solutions, state this.
x + 10y = 41
x + 9y = 37

  • Algebra -

    x + 10y = 41 ... (1)
    x + 9y = 37 ... (2)
    For substitution, rewrite as
    x = 41-10y ...(1a)
    and substitute x in (2) to get
    (41-10y) + 9y = 37
    Simplify and solve for y.
    Substitute y back in (1a) to find x.

    Post for an answer check if you wish.
