SIMULTANEOUS EQUATIONS AlgebraStep 4. Substitute x = 6 into one of the original equations and solve for y.5x6y125(6)6y12306y126y12306y186y6186y3Step 5. Check the solution by substituting x = 6 and y = -3 into the other originalequation.3x5y33(6)5(3)31815333Thus, the solution checks.Systems of two equations involving two unknowns can also be solved by substitution.Step 1. Solve one equation for one unknown in terms of the other.Step 2. Substitute this value into the other equation.Step 3. Solve the resulting equation for the value of the one remaining unknown.Step 4. Find the value of the other unknown by substituting the value of the firstunknown into one of the original equations.Step 5. Check the solution by substituting the values of the two unknowns into theother original equation.MA-02 Page 34 Rev. 0
