can you please solve this equatiion using elmination method.
But now we can say A+C=B+D because C=D, so looking back to our original equations we can see that we just added the left side of the first equation to the left of the second and the right of the first to the right of the second....
Onto this question, the left side is 4x and the right is 0 so
divide by 4 to get x=0
Now plug x=0 into one of the given equations, I'll use the first one: so 2y=27 so y=
You can only eliminate terms if they have coefficients that are the same size.
In this case, you can recognise that the y-values both have coefficients of "size" 2.
Then you check their signs.
If they're the same sign, then you would have to subtract one equation from the other. If they are different sign, then you add them together.
In this case, you can see that one is positive, one is negative, so you would have to add the equations together, as artvandalay said.
