How do you solve the system 5x - y = 3 and -10x + 2y = -6?
See a solution process below:
Both of these equations are almost in the Standard Form for linear equations. The standard form of a linear equation is:
Where, if at all possible,
We can get the second equation closer to Standard Form by multiplying both sides of the equation by
Now, we can divide each side of the equation by
These equations are actually the same equation. Therefore, the solution to this is they have all points in common.
