We will use the concept of linear equations in one variable to solve for y.
Let us see how we will use the concept of linear equation in one variable to solve for y.
We have been given two linear equations that are x + 3y = 6, and 2x − y = 10.
Equation 1 : x + 3y = 6
Equation 2 : 2x − y = 10
On multiplying equation (1) by 2, we get modified equation 1, which is,
Modified equation 1 : 2x + 6y = 12
On subtracting equation (2) from modified equation (1) we get,
7y = 2
y = 2 / 7
