 Question 168889: Using Substitution 4x + 2y = 1 2x + 3y = .70 Solving for X in the first problem 4x + 2y - 2y = 1 - 2y 4x = 1-2y 4x/4 = (1-2y)/4 x = (1 - 2y)/4 Substitute x into first equation (this is where I get lost) 2(1-2y/4) + 3y = .70 the example on this website says it should be 2(1+2y)/4+3y=.70, but if x = (1-2y)/4, how can you just change it to the 1+2y? Then also how do I solve the problem? If you could give me step by step with explanations so I understand that would be very helpful. This is my calculations: 2-4y/4 + 3y = .70 (multiplied 2 by everything in parentheses) 2-y+3y=.70 (4's cancel eachother out) 2+2y=.70 (3y minus 1y = 2y) 2+2y/2 = .70/2 (divide both sides by 2) 1+y = .35 y = .35 - 1 (subtract 1 from each side) y = -.65 Click here to see answer by Fombitz(13828)
