We will use the concept of linear equation 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, 2x − y = 10.
Equation 1 : x + 3y = 6
Equation 2 : 2x − y = 10
On multiplying the equation 1 by 1 we get modified equation 1.
Modified equation 1 : 2x + 6y = 12
On subtracting equation 2 from modified equation 1 we get,
7y = 2
y = 2 / 7
