I'm having trouble solving the following (ending up with an ordered pair) via the elimination method:
1) 0.05x + 0.25y = 44
2) 0.15x + 0.05y = 48
After multiplying by 100 to lose the decimals, I then multiplied the top equation by 15 and the bottom by 5. Is that correct ( 1) 75x + 35y = 660 2)75x + 25y = 240.)?
Then do I add the equations??
Thanks for the help!
