Hi there!

16) 5x - 2y =-5
y - 5x = 3

Add the second equation to the first:

-y = -2

Divide by -1:

y = 2

Plug into the first to get x:

5x - 2y =-5
5x - 2*2 = -5
5x - 4 = -5

5x = -1

Divide by 5:

x = -1/5

So: y = 2, x = -1/5.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solve each of the following systems by substitution
20. 8x - 4y = 16
y = 2x - 4

Plug the second equation into the first:

8x - 4(2x - 4) = 16

Distribute the 4:

8x - 8x + 16 = 16

Cancel terms:

16 = 16

This is a true statement, so there are infinite solutions.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
28. 4x - 12y =5
-x + 3y = -1

Solve the second equation for x:

-x + 3y = -1

Subtract 3y:

-x = -1 - 3y

Divide by -1:

x = 3y + 1

Plug that into the first equation:

4x - 12y = 5

4(3y + 1) - 12y = 5

Distribute:

12y + 4 - 12y = 5

Combine y's:

4 = 5

This is obviously false, so this system does NOT have a solution. It is inconsistent.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solve each of the following systems by using either addition or substitution. If a unique solution
does not exist, state whether the system is dependent or inconsistent.
38. 10x + 2y = 7
Y= -5x + 3

Using substitution, plug the second equation into the first:

10x + 2y = 7

10x + 2(-5x + 3) = 7

Distribute:

10x - 10x + 6 = 7

Combine x's:

6 = 7

This is obviously false, so this system does NOT have a solution. It is inconsistent.

56. Social science. In a town election, the winning candidate had 220 more votes
than the loser. If 810 votes were cast in all, how many votes did each candidate

We need two equations:

W + L = 810 (the total votes cast)

W = L + 220 (the winner had 220 more than the loser)

Now plug the second equation's W value into the first equation:

(L + 220) + L = 810

Combine L's:

2L + 220 = 810

Subtract 220:

2L = 590

Divide by 2:

L = 295

To find W, use the second equation:

W = 295 + 220 = 515

Do you have any specific questions? Please let me know which steps, if any, to clarify. Here it is again with a little more work filled in.

16) 5x - 2y =-5
y - 5x = 3

Add the second equation to the first:

5x - 2y + y - 5x = -5 + 3

Combine the right:

5x - 2y + y - 5x = -2

Combine the left:

-y = -2

Divide by -1:

y = 2

Plug the y value into the first equation to get x:

5x - 2y =-5
5x - 2*2 = -5
Multiply:
5x - 4 = -5

5x = -1

Divide by 5:

x = -1/5

So: y = 2, x = -1/5.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solve each of the following systems by substitution
20. 8x - 4y = 16
y = 2x - 4

Plug the second equation into the first, for y:

8x - 4(2x - 4) = 16

Distribute the 4:

8x - 8x + 16 = 16

Cancel terms with x:

16 = 16

This is a true statement, but it does not involve the variables, so there are infinite solutions.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
28. 4x - 12y =5
-x + 3y = -1

Solve the second equation for x:

-x + 3y = -1

Subtract 3y from each side:

-x = -1 - 3y

Divide each side by -1:

x = 3y + 1

Plug that x value into the first equation, everytime you see x:

4x - 12y = 5

4(3y + 1) - 12y = 5

Distribute:

12y + 4 - 12y = 5

Combine y's:

4 = 5

This is obviously false, so this system does NOT have a solution. It is inconsistent.

10x + 2(-5x + 3) = 7

Distribute the 2:

10x - 10x + 6 = 7

Combine the terms with x's:

6 = 7

This is obviously false, so this system does NOT have a solution. It is inconsistent.

56. Social science. In a town election, the winning candidate had 220 more votes
than the loser. If 810 votes were cast in all, how many votes did each candidate

Call the number of winning votes = W

We need two equations:

W + L = 810 (the total votes cast)

W = L + 220 (the winner had 220 more than the loser)

Now plug the second equation's W value into the first equation:

(L + 220) + L = 810

Combine L's:

2L + 220 = 810

Subtract 220 from each side:

2L = 590

Divide each side by 2:

L = 295

To find W, use the second equation:

W = L + 220

W = 295 + 220 = 515
