No solution: (e) , (h)

Question 2. Using substitution method solve the below equation

a)

b)

Solution

Using Substitution Method Solve the below Equation
1Method of elimination by substitution1) Suppose the equation are

2) Find the value of variable of either x or y in other variable term in first equation

3) Substitute the value of that variable in second equation

4) Now this is a linear equation in one variable. Find the value of the variable

5) Substitute this value in first equation and get the second variable

a) From 1st equation

Substituting this in second equation

Putting this 1st equation

b) (1,0)

Question 3. Using elimination method, solve the following

a)

b)

Solution

Using Elimination Method, Solve the Following
1Method of elimination by equating the coefficients1) Suppose the equation are

2) Find the LCM of and . Let it k.

3) Multiple the first equation by the value

4) Multiple the first equation by the value

4) Subtract the equation obtained. This way one variable will be eliminated and we can solve to get the value of variable y

5) Substitute this value in first equation and get the second variable

a) … (1)

… (2)

Multiplying equation (1) by 7

… (3)

Subtracting equation 2 from equation 7

We get

Substituting this in (1) , we get x = 15

b) (8,6)
