How do you solve the following system?: #x +12y = 13 , 5x - 2y = -4#
Because this question is in the section for using the Substitution method of solving systems of equations, that is the method I am going to use.
So, we start off with the equations:
1) Set an equation equal to a variable
Since the first equation has a lone variable, on without a coefficient, I'm going to use that one, but you can use whichever one you want.
2) Substitute the new equation into the other one
3) Plug answer back into original equation
4) Write the solution as a coordinate (x,y)
The solution is:
