Solve the following equations and find the values of x and y.
2x + y = 4
4x - 2y = 24
First solve each equation for y:
1) 2x + y = 4
subtracting 2x from both sides of the equation yields:
y = 4 - 2x
2) 4x - 2y = 24
subtracting 4x from both sides of the equation yields:
-2y = 24 - 4x
dividing -2 into both sides of the equation and rearranging ...
This solution helps solve the missing variables for various equations. That equations are graphed and places where the graphs are intersected are found.
