 Question 557651: A two-digit number is eight times the sim of its digits. When the number is added to the number obtained by reversing the digits, the sum is 99. Find the original number. (I tried 10x+y=8(x+y), 10x+y+10y+x=99) It didn't work though... Thanks! Click here to see answer by josmiceli(9698)

 Question 558965: I am trying to figure out how to solve the system: 2x - y = -8 y + 3z = 22 x z = -8 This is what I have so far in eliminating the y variable from the first two equations. 2x - y = -8 y +3 z = 22 That leaves 2x +3z = 14 I am stuck on how to eliminate x from the third equation since xz are together. Can you please help guide me to get the correct solution. Thanks. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57424)

 Question 565619: Use the system to answer the question {x+3y=6} {4x + 6y = -6} Note: The problem above are both under the { symbol, the first one is over the second one. These are the choices for the problem (-9, 5) (-3, 3) (6, 3) (12, -2) I'm not sure how I got it wrong. The correct answer was the first one. (I have the answers, so I can redo the ones I missed, but I have to show my work, and I don't know how to get that answer.) Could you look over my work that I did and explain how to get the solution? Thanks, much appreciated. My Work: {x+3y=6} {4x + 6y = -6} 1. I multiply the first equation by -4 so I can eliminate the 4x (-4) {x+3y=6} + {-4x -12y = -24} 2. I eliminate the 4x from the problem {-4x - 12y = -24} {4x + 6y = -6} (-4 and 4 crosses out so I'm left with" 0x - 12y = -24 0x + 6y = -6 3. Then I solve: -12 and a + 6 gets a -6. -24 and -6 gets -18 so I get 0x -6y = -18 From there I am stuck. I'm not sure if I use substitution or elimination or what. Thanks for your help!
