math help
posted by Urgent Urgent Please .
Thank you for helping me with the last problem Reiny and Bosnian.
However, I have one more problem that I need help with please and I have no idea how work the problem. I used an on line calculator to get the answer. It didn't give an explanation on how to do the problem though. I need to know how to do future problems like this one. Please help.
{Y=3x+1
Y=5x3
Answer says x=2 and y=7
Please explain steps. Thanks

Y=3x+1 ...(1)
Y=5x3 ...(2)
By comparison of (1) and (2), we conclude that
3x+1=Y=5x3
3x+1=5x3
solve for x to get
2x=4
x=2
Put x=2 in (1) to get
Y=3(2)+1=7
Check:
put x=2 in (2) to get
Y=5*23=7
If your program gives x=2 and y=7, there must be a typo somewhere. Check your post.
