    solutionn of two equations

    2/x + 3/y = 4

    3/x -2/y = 19


    so I get x = 0.2 and y = -0.5

    is x = 0 and y = 0 also a solution?

    Hello, CarmineCortez!

    . . \begin{array}{ccc}\dfrac{2}{x} + \dfrac{3}{y} &=& 4 \\ \\ [-3mm] \dfrac{3}{x} -\dfrac{2}{y} &=& 19 \end{array}


    So I get: . x = \frac{1}{5},\;y = -\frac{1}{2} . . . . Correct!


    Is x = 0,\:y = 0 also a solution? . . . . no

    In the original equations, you see that neither x nor y can be zero.
