Elimination method

Solve system of linear equations by elimination method:

5/2x + 3/5y= 4/15
1/2x + 2/5y= 2/15

Correct answer:

x =  0.0381
y =  0.2857

Step-by-step explanation:


5/2•x + 3/5•y= 4/15
1/2•x + 2/5•y= 2/15

75x+18y = 8
15x+12y = 4

x = 4/105 ≈ 0.038095
y = 2/7 ≈ 0.285714

Our linear equations calculator calculates it.
