solve by the elimination method 5u+3v=-17, 2u+v=-7 would there be a solution or not?

  • Math -

    since the lines have different slopes, they must intersect at a point somewhere.

    5u+3v = -17
    6u+3v = -21

    now subtract one from the other to make the v's go away, and solve for u.

    Then plug u back in to get v.
