ok so i suck at this even though its simple...i tend to over think these things....your help would be much appreciated
It is easy, but you need to find either p or q first and use it to solve for the other one. So, if you have
Say you want P for the first equation so you have to get P on one side alone...
Divide out your 2 to get P alone.
Which reduces to p=3+3q/2
Now, you have P so find Q by putting the value of P in the other equation...
and I think you can figure out the rest.
Ok, first you take equation 2 and solve for one of the variables.
Let's solve for 'p'.
Now, take the equation and plug it into the variable of the first equation.
Now solve the equation for 'q'.
Now, plug 'q' into the first equation.
Plug in 'p' and 'q' to check you answers in a equation (it doesn't matter if its the ist or second equation.)
Let's use the first since it look the easiest.
The answers are equal so you know your answers work.
Hope this helps.
