The following simultaneous equations are given in base two 11x + 10y = 1100
101x  y =111
Find the value of x and y

Reiny
multiply the 2nd by 10
1010x  10y = 1110
add to the first
1010x  10y = 1110
11x + 10y = 1100
...............................
1101x = 11010
x = 10
in the 1st
110 +10y = 1100
10y = 1100110 = 110
y = 11
