How do you solve the equations #8x + 3y = 16# and #2x + y = 4#?
There are different methods to solve these equations.
Solving using the Elimination method
Consider the given equations:
In order to make the coefficients of the variable 'y' the same, multiply equation (2) with 3.
Now, in order to eliminate the variable 'y', subtract (3) from (1).
Then we get,
Now, substitute this value in (2).
