Elimination method

Solve system of linear equations by elimination method:

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

Result

x =  0.038
y =  0.286

Solution:


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

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
