Solve the given linear system.
6x – 2y = 1
3x + 10y = 6
Use the addition/elimination method.
Multiply the first equation by 5 on both sides to get opposite coefficients for y.
5(6x – 2y) = 5(1)
30x – 10y = 5
We add this new equation to the
We add the resulting equation to the second equation by arranging vertically.
Solve for x.
Solve the resulting equation for x.
Substitute 1/3 for x into either of the two original equations.
3x + 10y = 6
Now solve for y using the value of x.
Solve for y.
1 + 10y = 6
10y = 5
Divide both sides by 2.
y = 1/2
The solution is (1/3, 1/2).
