 Question 127468: Using systems of equations(addition/elimination or substitution) solve this problem. A Honda Accord gets approximately 26 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. Bill drove 349.5 miles on a full tank (16 gallons) of gasoline. Using a two equation system of equations, determine approximately how many miles were driven in the city and on the highway. I tried dividing 349.5 by 16 gallons to get mileage and using the following equations. 26H + 19C = 21.84 and H + C = 349.50 Click here to see answer by josmiceli(9817)

 Question 127894: I am SO confused on this one, i already tried to solve this but when i checked by substittuting, they weren't equal. Solving Systems by Substitution: a = 2/b - 3 a = 2b - 18 I'm supposed to find the solution as a point like: [2,-4] but i have no idea if the a or b is x. Please help me with this! I tried this: 2/b-3=2b-18 thats all i know that im pretty sure is right then times 2 on both sides -3=4b-18 then add 18 and -15=4b divide by 4 and thats 3.75 but when i put that into the other equation like 2*3.75 thats -10.5 and the final was -10.5 = 2/3.75 - 3 and thats -10.5 = .5 - 3 which is -10.5 does not equal -3.5 Im so confused and don't know what i did wrong!
