Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: (x, y) = (3, 5) (x, y) = (1, 2)Step-by-step explanation:A nice graphing calculator app makes these trivially simple. (See the first two attachments.) It is available for phones, tablets, and as a web page.__The usual methods of solving a system of equations involve elimination or substitution. There is another method that is relatively easy to use. It is a variation of "Cramer's Rule" and is fully equivalent to elimination. It makes use of a formula applied to the equation coefficients. The pattern of coefficients in the formula, and the formula itself are shown in the third attachment. I like this when the coefficient numbers are "too messy" for elimination or substitution to be used easily. It makes use of the equations in standard form._____1. In standard form, your equations are ...2x -3y = -95x +2y = 25Then the solution is ... Β [tex]x=\dfrac{-3(25)-(2)(-9)}{-3(5)-(2)(2)}=\dfrac{-57}{-19}=3\\\\y=\dfrac{-9(5)-(25)(2)}{-19}=\dfrac{-95}{-19}=5\\\\(x,y)=(3,5)[/tex]__2. In standard form, your equations are ...3x +2y = 72x +5y = 12Then the solution is ... Β [tex]x=\dfrac{2(12)-5(7)}{2(2)-5(3)}=\dfrac{-11}{-11}=1\\\\y=\dfrac{7(2)-12(3)}{-11}=\dfrac{-22}{-11}=2\\\\(x,y)=(1,2)[/tex]_____Note on Cramer's RuleThe equation you will see for Cramer's Rule applied to a system of 2 equations in 2 unknowns will have the terms in numerator and denominator swapped: ec-bf, for example, instead of bf-ec. This effectively multiplies both numerator and denominator by -1, so has no effect on the result. The reason for writing the formula in the fashion shown here is that it makes the pattern of multiplications and subtractions easier to remember. Often, you can do the math in your head. This is the method taught by "Vedic maths" and/or "Singapore math." Those teaching methods tend to place more emphasis on mental arithmetic than we do in the US.
