 Question 247277: Hi, I am having such trouble with these equations. My book goes over one example in which does not help me for this and others. Is there a simpler way of solving these equations? If not, a nice step-by-step would be great! I have a final next week and cannot get this to sink in. Here's an example equation. 15x-10y=-1 15y=-2+5x I'm supposed to solve using substitution. When I add part of the equation to another, I get lost? I'm supposed to end up with an ordered pair. Thank you so much! Lise Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9135)
