Solve the following sets of equations for the equilibrium values of X and Y. Show your work: answers without supporting work will not receive full credit. a. (1/2 point) Y = 2X + 10 and Y = -5X + 24 2X + 10 = -5X + 24 7X = 14 X = 2 2(2) + 10 = 14 = -5(2) + 24 = 14 = Y b. (1/2 point) X = Y and X = 200 - .2Y Y = 200 - .2Y 1.2Y = 200 Y = 166.67 X = 166.67 2. Simplify the following expressions. a. ( 1/2 point): X 2 Y 3 X -1 = X Y 3 b. (1/2 point): X 2 Y 3 X 4 Y 1 = X 6 Y 4 c. (1/2 point): (X 2 Y 3 )/(X 3 Y 1 ) = Y 2 /X d.
