 Question 147063: Hello, I need help solving equation like the following: 0.7(3x + 4) ≥ 1.3 – (x+2) I know I remove the parentheses by multiplying 2.1x + 2.8 ≥ -1.3x? + -2.6 I am not sure if I multiply –x and -2 by 1.3 if so, I have I add 1.3x to each side and get 3.4x and subtract 2.8 from each side and get 3.4x ≥ - 5.4 Divide both sides by 3.4 X = -5.4 OR 1.6 rounded. I know this is incorrect but where did I go wrong? 3.4 Thank you for your help. Click here to see answer by Fombitz(13828)

 Question 147124: This Algebra is making me crazy. When solving by elimination method, I get mixed up, for example: 5x + 2y = -13 7x – 3y = 19 Do I find the common denominator for y? I would multiply the top equation by 3 and the bottom equation by 2. 3(5x + 2y) = 3 (-13) 2(7x – 3y) = 2 (19) 15x + 6y = -39 14x – 6y = 38 Do I add or subtract? 29x = -1 0r 1x =-1 x = -1/29 or x -1/1 or just -1 I know that whatever I get for x, I then replace the x in either of the first two equations to solve for y. I would then have the ordered pair for the solution to the system. Thank you so much. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57347)

 Question 147127: I am attempting to solve two equations using the substitution method. x + y = 56 first equation I have 3 times as many y as x, so I believe the next equation is 3x + y = 56 solve for y y = -3x + 56 now in the first equation, I replace y with -3x + 56 x + -3x +56 =56 -2x + 56 -56 = 56 -56 -2x = 0? This can not be correct. Can you help me? Thank you very much. Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)
