# How do solve the following linear system?: # 2x - 4y =3, 2x - 5y=3 #?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

So first you can set up your linear system to the following:

Do this because it is visually easier to simplify the next couple steps.

For the simplification part, I will be using the elimination method on the

Multiply the top equation in the linear system by

You should get the following when simplified:

Next, add the equations together going vertically making sure to add only to the corresponding term.

The

Then simplify by dividing the

Then you plug the

Then simplify:

Divide the

Finally, you plug them into a coordinate point that indicates when the two equations intersect:
