i'm having the same problem with the decimals. i have no idea how to approach this.
solve by elimination yet again.
do i change everything to fractions?
i'm really not sure how to do this one....
I can't seem to get the correct answer on this one.
Solve by elimination:
x+2/6 - 3(y+2)/2 = 1
x-2/2 + y-1/3 =0
(sorry i don't know how to make fractions in html...)
the answer is supposed to be (4,-2)
i think i'm messing up when i try to get rid of the fractions.
x+9y=17 and 3x+2y=8
i times the first one by -3 so i can cancel the x when added together and end up with 29y=65 which doesn't work.
I said assume because without parenthesis what you wrote implies and I understand that you do not know latex and cannot write fractions, but you must be careful with order of operations and use ( ) to denote what goes with what
Let's multiply both sides of both equations by 6, this will cancel the denominators and we'll get
Can you solve and ?
