Math 116

posted by .

if I solve this by substitution
8x+7y=-13
x=29-7y
I end up with -3.8

But I think there is no solution

    sub the 2nd into the 1st

    8(29-7y) + 7y = -13
    232 - 56y + 7y = -13
    -49y = -245
    y = 245/49 = 5

    then x = 29 - 7(5) = -6

    You should have questioned your "no solution" answer, since the lines have different slopes. The have to intersect somewhere.
