# How do you solve the simultaneous equations #3x-4y=11# and #5x+6y=12#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

You can solve this system of equations by using the multiplication method.

The first thing that you need to do is pick a variable to eliminate first, then figure out the *least common multiple* (LCM) of its coefficients.

Let's say that you want to eliminate

So, multiply the first equation by

and

Add the left side and the right side of these two equations *separately* to get

Now use this value of

The solutions to this system of equations are
