Question 1 Report
Solve the simultaneous equations y = 3x; 4y - 5x =14
The first equation can be rearranged as x = y/3. Then substituting this value of x into the second equation, we get: 4y - 5(y/3) = 14 Multiplying both sides by 3, we get: 12y - 5y = 42 7y = 42 y = 6 Substituting y = 6 into the first equation, we get: x = y/3 = 2 Therefore, the solution to the simultaneous equations is x = 2 and y = 6. So the answer is 2,6.
