 Question 262683: Solve using the elimination method -0.9x+0.8y=14.6 -0.3x+0.1y=3.7Answer by palanisamy(496)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The given equations are, -0.9x+0.8y=14.6 ...(1) -0.3x+0.1y=3.7 ...(2) (2)*3=> -0.9x+0.3y = 11.1 ..(3) (1)-(3)=> 0.8y-0.3y = 14.6-11.1 0.5y = 3.5 y = 3.5/0.5 y = 7 (1)=> -0.9x+0.8*7 = 14.6 -0.9x = 14.6-5.6 -0.9x = 9 x = 9/(-0.9) x = -10 Therefore the solution is x= -10 and y = 7
