Best Answer

You cannot, since "x equals 0" and "y equals 0" are NOT inequalities!

If x and y are counts of things, or measures (such as length) which must be positive then the reason for such constraints should be obvious.

Q: What is the purpose of having have inequalities x equals 0 and y equals 0 as two of the constraints in an application?

Inequalities don't equal anything.

The question contains two equations:5x - 6y = 15 5x + y = 2 There are no inequalities in the question.

An expression, or, more pedantically, inequalities.

None. Properties of inequalities are not that relevant when solving equalities.

They both: - have variables, - are open sentences, - consist of two expressions joined by a "verb" (equals or inequality sign), - have solution sets (which may be empty or have one or more elements).

if there are no comparison signs (equals or inequalities, ie =, >, < etc) then it is an expression, eg "x + 5" If there is a comparison sign which is not equals, then it is an inequality, eg "x > 5"

No, but incorrect application of mathematics can make it look like it does.

One important difference between solving equations and solving inequalities is that when you multiply or divide by a negative number, then the direction of the inequality must be reversed, i.e. "less than" becomes "greater than", and "less than or equal to" becomes "greater than or equal to".Actually, from a purist's sense, the reversal rule also applies with equations. Its just that the reversal of "equals" is still "equals". The same goes for "not equal to".
