-4.5x - 2y  = -12.5   (1)

3.25x - y  = -0.75    →   y =  3.25x + 0.75   (2)

 

Put (2)  into (1)

 

-4.5x - 2 (  3.25x + 0.75 )  = -12.5       simplify

 

-4.5x - 6.5x - 1.5  = -12.5

 

-11x  - 1.5  = -12.5      add 1.5 to both sides

 

-11x  = -11       divide both sides by   -11

 

x  = 1

 

And using ( 2)

 

y =  3.25 (1)  + 0.75   =   4

 

 

 

cool cool cool
