There are an infinite number of solutions. The equation is that of a straight line, which has an infinite number of points. At any point on the line there is a unique value of y.

2x plus 5y equals 7 3x plus 6y equals 3

1) 2x + 5y = 7
2) 3x + 6y = 3

I'm going to use the method of elimination to solve for x and y.
Multiply 1) by 3 and 2) by 2 to allow the x's to be eliminated.

1) 6x + 15y = 21
2) 6x + 12y = 6

Now subtract line 2 from line 1.

0x + 3y = 15
---- ----
3 3 divide both sides by 3 to get y by itself.
y =5.
Substitute into 1) to calculate x.
2x + 5(5) = 7
2x + 25 = 7
2x + 25 -25 = 7 - 25
2x = -18
---- ----- divide both sides by 2 to get x by itself
2 2

x = -9

Check by plugging in answer into the other equation, in this case 2)

3 (-9) + 6(5) = 3
-27 + 30 = 3
3 = 3
We did it correctly and checked to prove that we did it right.

Good luck.

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

8x+5y=-25 help me find the x Andy intercepts

To find the x-intercept, set y equal to zero and solve for x.
To find the y-intercept, set x equal to zero and solve for y.

In this case the x-intercept is -3 1/8 and the y-intercept is -5.

X and y intercepts

First of all you equation is not one : it has nothing on the right side of the = sign. But to answer the general question let us write the equation as 50+25x-5y=0
X-intercept (also know as roots) There may be several
Definition: X-intercepts are those values of the independent variable x for which y=0. For a straight line there con be at most 1 x-intercept.
To find the intercept, set y=0 in the equation of the line and solve for x
50+25x-5(0)=0 or 50+25x=0. The solution is x=-(50/25)=-2

Y-intercept (also know as the initial value. There can only be 1 y-intercept, otherwise the expression does not represent a function.
Definition: It is the value of the dependent variable y when x=0 (where the function crosses the y-axis
To find it, set the x-value to 0 in the equation of the line.
50+25(0)-5y=0, or 50-5y=0. The solution is y=50/5=10
The straight line cuts the x-axis at the point (-2, 0) and the y-axis at the point (0,10)

If y=f(x)=5x+3/4x-5 , show that x=f(y)

Write the equality in the form y=(5X+3)/(4X-5). Insert parentheses to ensure a correct result.
  1. Multiply both sides of the equality by (4X-5). This gives (4X-5)y=(5X+3).
  2. Open the parentheses as 4Xy-5y=5X+3
  3. Subtract 5X from both sides 4Xy-5y-5X=5X-5X+3
  4. Add 5y to both sides 4Xy-5X-5y+5y=5y+3 or 4Xy-5X=5y+3
  5. Factor the X on the left side X(4y-5)=5y+3
  6. If 4y-5 does not vanish, you can isolate X by dividing both members of the equality by (4y-5).
  7. You get X=(5y+3)/(4y-5)=f(y)
Compare the initial function f(x) and the function just found: They have the same form: X and y have switched places.

Write an equation of the line in standard form that pass through (-5,-11) and 10,7)

Calcualte the slope of the line as
Use the fact that the line passes through one of the two points, for example (10,7)
Obtain b as b=7-12=-5
The equation of the line in functional form is y=(6/5)x-5
Multiply everything by 5 to clear the fraction
5y=6x-25 or 0=6x-5y-25
Finally, the equation in general form (standard?) is 6x-5y-25=0.

Check the calculation by verifying that the point (10,7) lies on the line.
6(10)-5(7)-25=60-35-25=60-60=0 CHECKed!
Check that the second point (-5,-11) lies on the line also (if you want to)
That checks OK.
