How does writing equivalent equations help you solve a system of equations?

You can write an equivalent equation from a selected equation in the system of equations to isolate a variable. You can then take that variable and substitute it into the other equations. Then you will have a system of equations with one less equation and one less variable and it will be simpler to solve.

What 2 number multiply to 800 and add to get -70?

Instead of just giving you the answer, I'll tell you how to solve the problem. To solve this problem, write two equations. Let one variable be x and the other y. Then you can say: xy = 800 x + y = -70 Isolate x + y = -70 for y and you get y = -70-x Then plug it back into the first equation, solve for x and plug your answer into the second equation to solve for y. Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any questions :)

An equation to find the value of the variable 104, 137, 154 and x with a mean of 130 is: (104 + 137 + 154 + x)/4 = 130 395 + x = 130 * 4 x = 145.

Two numbers have a product of 20 and a sum of 9?

To solve this question use a two variable system of equations. First assign a variable to each number: a=first number b=second number Then use the information in the problem to write two equations They have a product of 20 translates to: a x b =20 They have a sum of 9 translates to: a + b =9 Use the method of substitution. Isolate one variable in the 1st equation: a= 20/b Plug it into the 2nd equation: (20/b) + b = 9 Solve for b: b = 5 Now put b back into the 2nd equation: a + 5=9 Solve for a: a = 4 So the solution is 4 and 5.

1.) write down question 2.) cry. 1) Read the question through until you understand it 2) Find out what it asking you to solve for 3) Write down what is given like equations, variables, constant like pi. ...etc 4) Write down what your solving for. 5) Setup your solution to the problem by doing the following : A) Write : " Given:" B) what equation you are using to solve it C) any constant like pi, e, 10^...etc D) what you are solving for. E) Write: "Step 1:" 5) Write down your equation, you are using to solve it. 6) Do you have to rearrange the equation to get what you are solving for? If so than do it. Show it in step 1 and use it instead of other Write out what math operation you are using to solve it in each of the step by step operation When you finally get your answer for it, do a proof or check for it. Write : " Proof or check" Write down the original equation Replace the found variable with the answer you got for Do the step by step operation and writing down what math operation you are using. If it equals than write : "It checks and equals ". If not - Backtrack to find your error, correct it, redo the proof again until it equals Move on to the next problem.
