Q:
# A system of equations is graphed on the coordinate plane. y=−6x−3y=−x+2 What is the solution to the system of equations? Enter the coordinates of the solution in the boxes

Accepted Solution

A:

If you equate both, the y is eliminated:

-6x-3 = -x+2

Simplify this to find x:

-5x = 5

x = -1

Fill in x=-1 in either equation:

y = --1 + 2 = 3

So (-1,3) is the solution, it is where the lines intercept.

-6x-3 = -x+2

Simplify this to find x:

-5x = 5

x = -1

Fill in x=-1 in either equation:

y = --1 + 2 = 3

So (-1,3) is the solution, it is where the lines intercept.
