Use algebraic method to solve line 1 x+4y=14 line a 3x+2y=12

  • math -

    algebraic method?

    x+4y=14
    3x+2y=12

    multipy the first equation by 3
    3x+12y=42
    3x+2y=12

    subtract the second equation from the first.
    10y=30
    y=3
    put that value of y into either equation, and solve for x.
