 Question 58306: This is the last one I had trouble with, again thank you all! Using substitution or addition method. 1eq) 5x-2y=17 2eq) 2.5x-y=3 Answer by venugopalramana(3286)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! FOLLOW THE SAME METHOD AS THIS -------------------------------------------- Can someone help me on this problem? I need to solve the following system by using either addition or substitution. If a unique solution does not exist, I have to state whether the system is dependent or inconsistent. 10x + 2y -= 7................1 y = -5x + 3 5X+Y =3.....................2 MULTIPLY EQN.2 WITH 2 10X+2Y=6.......................3 SUBTRACT FROM EQN.1 10X+Y-10X-Y=7-6 0=1 HENCE THE EQNS. ARE INCONSISTENT . THERE IS NO SOLUTION
