1) Find the solution to the following system of two linear equations, if it has a solution.

2x-y=3, -x+y=1


2Find the solution to the following system of two linear equations, if it has a solution.

2x+y=4, x+3/2y=3

  • Math -

    a. add the equations: x=4, and put that x into either to solve for y.

    b. multipy the first equation by 3/2,
    3x+3/2 y=6 Now subtract the second equation from that.
    2x=1
    x=1/2 and solve for y.
