To solve the system of equations, which expression could be substituted for x into the first equation?

3x-5y=14
x+4y=10

a)10-4y
b)4y+10
c)(1/4)x+(5/2)
d)(-1/4)x+(5/2)

I have another problem just like this one so if you could explain how to solve this one I can (hopefully) solve the other,thanks

Solve the second equation for x:

x + 4 y = 10 --->

x = 10 - 4 y

ok I think I got the idea,lets try this one.

2x+7y=10
x-2y=15

I'm thinking 2y-15 here are the choices:
a)(1/2)x+15
b)(1/2)x-15
c)2y+15
d)2y-15

x-2y=15 ---->

x = 2y + 15

    If you were to use the substitution method to solve the following system, choose the new equation after the expression equivalent to x from the first equation is substituted into the second equation. x – 2y = 2 x + 3y = 17

    How do you solve system of equations and tell if they're consistant and independant,consistant and dependent,and inconsistant? If you find no solutions then the system is inconsistent. Suppose you have N variables and M equations

    Solve the system of equations using matrices. If system has no solution say its inconsistent. 6x + y = 5 3x - y + z - w = 8 z + w = 2 Solve the system of equations using Cramers Rule if applicable. 4x + 2y = 8/5 5x - 5y = 5
