Had the signs of the co-efficients of y, the quantity to be eliminated, been unlike, the elimination would have been effected by addition instead of subtraction. The following examples will further illustrate this method. Illustrative Examples. I. Given 7 x--Sy = 9 and 4x + by = 32. to find the values of r and y. Multiply both members of (1) (1) 7x--3y= 0 by 5, and of (2) by 3, and mlil (2) 4x + 5y = 32 the results (3) and (4) to get (5). (3) 35 x--15 # = 15 Note. For the sake of brevity we (4) 12i+15y = 96 sj1eak of adding or subtracting one (5) 47 x = 141 equation to or from another; but the x = 3 meaning is that each member of one equation is added to or subtracted from the corresponding member of the other. 21-3 y = 9 Substitute 3 for x in (1), and-3y =-12 find the value of y. y=4. Verify by substituting 3 for r and 4 for y in (2). 12 + 20 = 32. If we had chosen to eliminate x, the work would have been as follows: (3') 28x-12y = 36 Multiply both members of (1) (4') 28 x + 35 y = 224 by 4, and of (2) by 7, and sub-(5') 47=188 tract the first result (3') from the y = 4 second (4'). 7x-12 = 9 Substitute 4 for y in (1), and 7x=21 find the value of x. x = 3.
