Linear Equation: yearly profits: In news reports, profits of a compagny this year (T) are often compared with those of last year (L), but actual values of T and L are not always given. this year , a company had profits of $25 million more than last year. the profits were up 30%. determine T and L from these data. 2nd Question: INVESTMENTS
A total of $35,000 was invested at three interest rate: 7,8, and 9%. The interest for the first year was $2830, which was not reinvdeste. The second year the amount originally invested at 9% earned 10% instead, and the other rates remained the same. The total interest the second year was $2960. How much was invested at each rate?
HELP please please

How do I solve (3x-2y)2(3xy-3)

First, we will find y in terms of x. We will use the first equation to determine this.
We can subtract 4x from both sides:
And then divide both sides of the equation by two:
Since we now have y in terms of x, we can substitute this into our second equation.
Then, we can distribute the minus sign
Next, we can add 1 to both sides of the equation.

Finally, we divide both sides by negative one to isolate x.
Now that we have x's value, we can find y's value.
The first thing that we determined is:
We can substitute in the value of x to this equation.
Therefore, we now have the values of both variables.

8x + 3y = 3 4x + 5y = -23

This is best written as two separate equations:

8x+3y = -23 and 34x+ 5y = -23
Solving the first one for x:
8x = -23-3y
x = -23/8 - 3/8y
Substituting this value for x into the second equation:
34(-23/8 - 3/8y) + 5y = -23
-97.75 - (34)(.375)y + 5y = -23
-97.75 - 12.75y + 5y = -23
-97.75 -7.75y = -23
-7.75y = 97.75-23=74.75
y = -74.75/7.75 = -9.645161
Substitution back into the equation for x:
x = -23/8 - 3/8(-9.645161)
x = -2.875 + 3.616935
x =.741935

1 Answer

4x - 2x + 1 = 5 + x - 7

Start by combining like terms on each side of the equation.
Remember, when working with variables the real numbers always come last in the equation(i.e. 5+x-7=x+5-7)
Once you have this completed move all variables to one side and all whole numbers to the other side. Solve from there.

How do I solve this linear equation? 4x+3=3x-4

1 Answer

This is a two equation problem in which you have to eliminate one variable to find value of other, solve by elimination method, 2r-3s=-10 & 3r 2s=37

Given "2R-3S=-10", then "6R-9S=-30".
Given "3R 2S=37", then "6R 4S=74".

Subtract the two equations: "6R-6R 4S --9S = 74 --30",
which reduces to: "4S --9S=104".
Note that 'R' has been eliminated from the equation, as requested.

Solving for 'S' is left as an exercise for the reader.

3x+8y+ 13z=357.5 16x+9y=326

This is easy. First these brackets ( ) have a three numbers followed by an x y and z, the brackets mean we should multiply the like amounts: but first lets group like amounts by adding them up 3x+16x+6x= 25x then 8y+9y+11y=28y, now z...13z+14z=27z now the otherside of the equation which is always after the equal sign is 326+453=779, so now it is more simplified by combining like amounts:so now we have 25x+28y++27z=779 so now we must balance both sides of thr equation, what we do to the left side of the equal sign, we must also do to the right side of the = sign, so we need to get x by itself, so we minus 25 and are left with just an x, then if we take 25 off of the other side of the = sign, we must take 779-25 so now x is on the left side by itself then the the right side is 754, so now the x is solved X=754, then you do the same for y and z.

Solving systems of equations by elimination

Hi joanmae jmeh;

You can add these equations just like you would numbers

3x + 2y = 7
5x - 2y = 1
8x =8
Now plug x = 1 back into either equation and you can solve for y
Y = 2

When you add the 2 equations together the +2y and the -2y cancel

Hope this helps Loringh Please leave a rating for me Thks

Determining the equation of the parabola

V (2,0) and Focus (2,2)
since the focus is 2 units above the vertex, the parabola opens upward

vertex (h,k)
a is the focal length (distance between the vertex and the focus)
a = 2
(2 units above the vertex)

(x-h)^2 = 4a (y-k)
(x-2)^2 = 4(2) (y-0)
x^2 - 4x + 4 = 8 (y)
x^2 - 4x + 4 = 8y
x^2 - 4x - 8y + 4 = 0

**Answer: "(x-2)^2 = 8 (y)" or in expanded form "x^2 - 4x - 8y +4"

Your friend John asks you for advice concerning life insurance. John is 32 years old and graduated from law school last year. he currently earns $48,000 per year as a first year attorney. John is married and has two children, Billy, age 10, and Sarah, age 4. John's wife, Mary, is a professor who currently earns $58,000 per year. Mary is 34 years old. John and Mary pay $1,700 per month for their home mortgage, which will be paid off in 20 years. The interest rate on their mortgage is 4.5%. (Their current equity in the home is $75,000.) The couple owns two cars, both 8 years old, and personal property (such as clothes, electronics, furniture, etc.) values at $45,000. Their investments have been used up paying for John's law school education, so they currently have only $1,000 in savings and checking accounts, and $2,000 in a mutual fund. John has no life insurance. Mary has $100,000 of life insurance provided by her employer. mary's pension plus social security are expected to total $45,000 per year, beginning when she is 67 years old. If John should die, Mary would receive approximately $10,000 per year from social security until Sarah reaches age 18. John and Mary spend most of their current income, although they do try to save about $50 per month. Their investments earn approximately 5% per year. In addition to their home mortgage, John has a student loan of $15,000 that he must start making payments on in 6 months. he plans to pau back the loan in 5 years and the loan's interst rate is 6% per year. Given that Mary enjoys a flexible work schedule, and because Mary's mother lives close by and watches the kids two days per week, the currently are not paying any child care expenses.
