2x + 3y = 15.5

x+y = 6 or x = 6-y Substitute THIS value of x into the first equation

2 (6-y) + 3y = 15.5

12-2y+3y = 15.5

y = 3.5 Now sustitue THIS value of y in to the first OR the second equation to find x

x + 3.5 = 6

x = 2.5

Always good to see we got the SAME answers! Sometimes, I do the work on paper, submit my answer and THEN sign in.....and you may not see I was working on it.....no worries !

I sometimes submit an answer that someone else is working on because there are multiple ways to answer them....and it is good to see them all....
