1.Four times a number, x, plus five times a number, y, equals 79. Ten times x minus 5 times y equals 5. Find the numbers by setting up a system of linear equations and solving the system using the elimination method.

x = 7, y = 9

x = 6, y = 11

x = 8, y= 10

x = -10, y = 7

#### Top Answer

1) We have the equations, 4x + 5y = 79 and 10x - 5y = 5. Divide the second equation by 5. 2x - y = 1. So y = 2x - 1. Plug... View the full answer
