 Question 100795: Solve by substitution. -4x+y= -11 2x-3y= 5 I started by isolating "x" in 2nd equation: 2x = 3y+5. I substituted the "x" in the 1st equation: -4(3y+5)+y+ -11 to get: -12y-20+y= -11. I combined like terms to get: -11y = 9 , to get the solution for "y" - 9/11. Is this correct? If so, how do I get "x" solution? Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28598)

 Question 101019: Biotech Company is selling their product in single units for \$4.17 each and in bulk bundles of 10 which cost \$25.85 per bundle. They sell 829 units of their product in one day which gives them a gross revenue of \$2,426.68. How many single units and how many bundles did they sell that day? here is what i have so far: 4.17x + 25.85y = 2426.68 x + y = 829 for some reason i can't get the answer to work out.

 Question 102155: Hi, Can you please help with this equation? I have a test first thing tomorrow morning and I am very stuck. I know what the answers should be, (x=1.5 and y=-0.8) but and having trouble getting there. The equation is as follows: 1.2(x+4)-2.5(3y-2) = 2 4/5(3x-5)+ 3/2(3y-4) = -10 This is what I've got so far: 1.2(x+4)-2.5(3y-2) = 2 .08(3x-5)+1.5(3y-4) = -10 1.2x + 4.8 -7.5y+5 = 2 2.4x-4 + 4.5y-6 = -10 1.2x + 9.8 -7.5y = 2 2.4x -10 + 4.5y = -10 2.4x x -7.5 -10x-7.5 +4.5y-7.5 = 10x-7.5 -18x +75 -33.75y = -75 1.2x-18x +9.8+75 - 7.5y-33.75y = -75+2 16.8x + 84.8 - 41.25y = 77 Click here to see answer by stanbon(57377)
