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

### 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 +5y=-25 what is the value of x?

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 x.

### What ia the sulution of 3y-6x=-3

To find the solution, first find the value of y for each equation.
Then substitue one equation into the other so that you only the x variable left.
Then just solve for x.
Once you have a value for x, then you can easily solve for y.

So for the first equation:

3y - 6x = -3
3y = 6x - 3

y = 2x - 1

Now for the second equation:

2y + 8x = 10
2y = -8x + 10

y = -4x + 5

Since both equations equal y, they also equal each other, therefore:

2x - 1 = -4x + 5

Now just solve for x:

2x + 4x = 5 + 1
6x = 6

x=1

Now substitute x=1 into either original equation:

y = 2x - 1
y = 2 (1) - 1
y = 2 - 1

y = 1

Therefore the solution is x=1 and y=1

Good luck, I hope that helps.

### Tom is 5 times as old as todd.In seven years Tom's age will be 6 years more than 3 times as old as Todd. How old is Todd

Todd is 4 years old.

Let Tom's age = X
Let Todd's age = Y

From the given facts:

X = 5Y

and

X + 7 + 6 = 3 ( Y + 7 )
X+13 = 3Y + 21
X = 3Y + 8

So if:
X=5Y
and
X=3Y+8

Then:
5Y=3Y+8
2Y=8
Y=4

I hope that helps.

### How do i solve for the solutions to the simultaneous linear equations on the fx-115es? I don't know how to set up the calculator to do it. 10x-3y+10z=5 8x-2y+9z=3 8x+y-10z=7

Select the EQN computational mode 5:EQN

For system of linear equations in 3 unknowns select 2: in the screen below.

Arrange the variables in your equations in the same order (x first, y second, and z third).
The coefficients to enter in the editor are the factors of the variables: In your case a_1=10, b_1=-3, c_1=10, d_1=5, a_2=8, b_2=-2, c_2=9, d_2=3; a_3=8, b_3=1, c_3=-10, d_3=7.
To enter d_1, d_2, and d_3 you will have to scroll to the right to reach the cells where they should go.

Once finished entering the coefficients, press EXE to get the solutions. You may have to use the arrow Down to display the y- and z-solutions.
I verified that the matrix is non-singular and the system has a solution. In fraction form
x=27/53, y=-1 and 22/53; finally z=-23/53

### Heena has only rs 2 and rs 5 coins,in her purse. if in all she has 80 coins in her purse amounting to rs 232. find the number of rs 5 coin.

Is this a maths school problem?
You need to use algebra -
2x + 5y = 232 (heena has a number of 2 and 5 coins in her purse which add up to 232)
x + y = 80 (heena has x number of 2 and y number of 5 coins which tally to 80)
therefore, x = 80 - y
so going back to first equation, 2(80 - y) + 5y = 232
160 - 2y + 5y = 232
3y = 72
y = 24
and going back to x, x = 80 - y
x = 80 - 24
x = 56
so heena has 56 rs 2, and 24 rs 5. So the answer is 24.
