x + y = 0
5x + 2y = -3

this is what i got so far....


x + y = 0 ----> x = 0 - y

5x + 2y(0-y) = -3

please help!!!!

    you have it right so far

  • Math 8R - HELP! -

    i know but can you please help me do the rest

  • Math 8R - HELP! -

    you take 2 times 0 to get rid of the y, then you have 5x= negative three figure out x or else you are never going to learn. Is this due tomorrow?

  • Math 8R - HELP! -

    yes

    you don't have to give me the answer

    I just wanted you to write it out so that I can understand and figure out the answer myself.

    2x0=0
    5x=-3
    what is x?

  • Math 8R - HELP! -

    x + y = 0
    5x + 2y = -3

    y=-x

    5x+2(-x)=-3
    5x-2x=-3
    3x=-3
    divide both sides by 3
