 Question 29518: I need your help with solving equations as relations. The problem is as follows: 3x=2y - 1 a. (1,2) b.(-1,-1) c.(-2,-5/2) d.(0,-1/2) I tried and this is what i got: 3x=2y - 1 Add one to the 3x 3x + 1=2y You get 4x = 2y 4x = 2y Divide 4x by 2y and you get 2xy. I dont think I did that right and thats not one of my multiple choice answers. Thanks, Addy Click here to see answer by stanbon(57984)

 Question 30389: Hello. Ok the problem that I am having with my homework is this. The question says to solve each system of equations by using the substitution method. I am already aware that the problem here will have two answers so here it is y=2x x+y=12 I have tried to subtract the y value from the x+y=12, but I am not sure what I am doing!

 Question 30859: Hello, I am not good at intermediate algebra. In fact I do not understand anything and I feel about yay tall. I feel very small. Anyways here is the questions 1. Solve the system of equations using the subtraction method...3x+y=2 and 2x-y=3. 2. Solve the system of equations using the addition (elimination) method.....9x-2y=2 and 3x+5y=5 and the next is ...Solve the equations using the addition (elimination) method... 3x-11y=9 and -9x+33y=18. My online algebra instructor is from greece and I do not understand her at all and she is horrible at spelling and she will not let us take notes what-so-ever. Click here to see answer by Nate(3500)

 Question 31287: I am an old student back in college taking Beginning algebra. We are doing systems of equations and inequalities. Two questions involving solving eq. by addition. 4(x+1)=17-3(y-1),2(x+2)+3(y-1)=9 Second question:3x-16=5y,33-5y=4x both are systems. Thank you,Liz Click here to see answer by mukhopadhyay(490)

 Question 31320: This one is tough, 4x=3(4-y),3y=4(2-x) I rewrote the equations to be:4x+3y=12 & 4x-3y= -8 both are systems. The chapter is solving systems of equations by addition. So I mulitplied 4(3)+3(3)=12(3) to get 12x+9y=36 Next eq. 4(3)-3(3)= -8 to get 12x-9y= -24 I tried to add and got x=0.5 and I tried to put 0.5 back into the other eq. but something seems wrong. Did I go wrong in my math? Or is this an inconsistent equation? Thank you, Liz Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6294)

 Question 31324: 3x-16=5y,33-5y=4x This is solving systems of equations by addition. I rewrote them to be: 3x-5y=16,4x+5y= -33 I added then together to find x and came up with x= -17 I tried to put it back into the other equation like: 3(-17)-5(-17)=16(-17) to get -51-85y= -272 and it just doesn't look right. Did I mis-calculate? Thanks, Liz Click here to see answer by checkley71(8403)

 Question 31404: find the minimum or maximum value of the quadratic function. f(x)=-x^2-x+2 I get: -(-1)/[2(-1)]= -(-1)/-2= x=1/2 then: y=-(1/2)^2-(1/2)+2 =-(1/4)-(1/2)+2 =-(1/4)-(2/4)+8/4 =5/4 My book says the answer is 9/4.
