Start with the given system of equations: Multiply the both sides of the second equation by -1. Distribute and multiply. So we have the new system of equations: Now add the equations together. You can do this by simply adding the two left sides and the two right sides separately like this: Group like terms. Combine like terms. Simplify. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Now go back to the first equation. Plug in . Multiply. Add to both sides. Combine like terms on the right side. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. So our answer is and . Which form the ordered pair . This means that the system is consistent and independent. Notice when we graph the equations, we see that they intersect at . So this visually verifies our answer. Graph of (red) and (green)

 Polynomials-and-rational-expressions/178574: I hope someone can help me out with this. For the problems I am working on I have been trying to get the right set up for this equation. This is what I am working on:2. Biologists want to set up a station to test alligators in the lake for West Nile Virus. Suppose that the costs for such a station are $2,500 for setup costs and$3.00 to administer each test. For part a I had to write an expression that gives the total cost to test x animals. a)c=mx+b c=3.00x+2500 Part b I to find the average cost per animal by dividing total costs by number of animals. Write the expression that gives the average cost per animal. This is what I have so far for this. I am missing something and need to see where I am going wrong. a)c=mx+b c=3.00x+2500/x I just need to know if I am writing the expressions correctly or if I need to do the whole expression to get the answer. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. 1 solutions Answer 133536 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2009-01-26 15:24:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Note: an expression does NOT have an equals sign a) You have the right equation, but they want an expression (ie they do NOT want an equals sign) So the expression is 3x+2500 b) Since the average cost can be found "by dividing total costs by number of animals", this means that the average cost is simply: So the expression that gives the average cost per animal is So it looks like you're on the right track, but forgot that they wanted expressions as answers.
