How do solve the following linear system?: # 2x - 4y =3, 2x - 5y=3 #?
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.
Then simplify by dividing the
Then you plug the
Finally, you plug them into a coordinate point that indicates when the two equations intersect:
