Short Answer

in exercises 1 through 10, find all solutions of the linear systems using elimination.Then check your solutions


The solution of system of equations is x=-1,y=1x=-1,y=1

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1:Transforming the system

To get the solution, we will transform the value of x,y.

x+2y=12x+3y=1Into the form x=....y=....

Step 2: Eliminating the variables.

In the given system of equations, we can eliminate the variables by adding or subtracting the equations.

In this system, we can eliminate the variable xfrom first equation. First of all multiply the first equation by 2.


Now subtract the first equation from the second equation.


Now put the value of y which is in first equation to the second equation.


Step 3: Checking the solution.

Now check the solution by putting the value of x and y in the given system of equation.

2-1+41=2?2-1+31=1? -2+4=2?-2+3=?1 2=21=1

Hence, the solution of the given system is x=-1,y=1
