  1. 4x+2-3x=4+1

    x = 3

  2. 4x+2-3x=4+1

    4x + 2 - 3x = 5

    4x + -3x = x

    x + 2 = 5

    x + 2 - 2 = 5 - 2

    x = 3

    Solve S=a/(1-r) for r S = a/(1-r) Multiply both sides by 1-r S*(1-r) = [(1-r)*a]/(1-r) Simplify S*(1-r) = a Multiply terms on the left. S - S*r = a Subtract S from both sides. S-S*r - S = a - S Simplify -S*r = a - S Multiply both

    I believe I have the answers already. Just need confirmation please! Solve the following system of equations. x + 2y = 5 x = 2 - 2 y; For the first equation, I canceled out the x and divided by 2 on both sides. So y = 5 - x/ y.
