Multiply first equation by 2: 4x - 2y = 20 Subtract second equation: x = 12, so y = 14.

20

You haven't given the solution to the equation ! 3x + 20 = ? If you have the number for the question-mark - you can find the value of x ! For example in the equation 3x + 20 = 50... the value of x is 10.

Add 5 to both sides of the equation to get rid of the - 5. -3x - 5 + 5 = -20 + 5 Solve and simplify. -3x = -15 Divide both sides of the equation by -3. x = 5

x = 5 y = 2 4x - 3y = ? 4(5) - 3(2) = ? 20 - 6 = 14

An equation never equals a number, but its solution often does.-- An equation with a solution of six: [ 3x - 14 = 4 ]-- An equation with a solution of three: [ 14 - 10x = -16 ]-- An equation with both solutions: [ x2 - 9x + 20 = 2 ]An equation that equals 6 is 10 - 4 = 6An equation that equals 3 is 10 - 7 = 3

Yes, it does.

x = 34 {add 14 to both sides: x - 14 + 14 = 20 + 14 = 34}

what is the solution of x-5y=10 and 2x-10y=20

First you get the variables on one side and the constants on the other. -2x = 14 Then you divide by -2 to get the variable alone. x = -7

One equation y equals 9 x equals 14 Don't forget to add it to 23.

Multiply first equation by 2: 4x - 2y = 20 Subtract second equation: x = 12, so y = 14.

4x - 14 + 6 = 12 first I would combine the terms -14 and +6, which when added together give us -8, so 4x - 8 = 12 then I would add 8 to both sides of the equation, which gives us 4x = 20 then I would divide both sides of the equation by 4, which gives x = 5 and that is the solution.

balance the equation 3x-x=20-6 3x-x=2x 20-6=14 2x=14 x=7
