What is the solution to the system of equations? y = –5x + 6, y = –3x – 4
We will use the concept of linear equations in one variable in order to find the solution to the system of equations.
Answer: x = 5 and y = -19 are the solutions to the equations.
We will use the substitution method in order to find the solution to the system of equations.
We have been two linear equations that are y = –5x + 6 and y = –3x – 4.
Let us first solve for x.
For solving for x, let us first equate the value of y.
–5x + 6 = –3x – 4
-2x = -10
x = 5
If x = 5, then on substituting the value of x in any of the equations we get the value of y.
Let us substitute the value of x in the second equation and on solving we get y = -19
