I was reading the news and I found question 11 to be confusing. I never learned how to solve systems.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question:

Solve the following system for x and y

1)[tex]\frac{x}{8}-\frac{y}{2}=1[/tex]-------------------------2)[tex]\frac{x}{3}=y+\frac{2}{3}[/tex]

WORK:

1)[tex]\frac{x}{8}-\frac{y}{2}=1[/tex]-------------------------2)[tex]\frac{x}{3}-\frac{2}{3}=y[/tex]

1)[tex]=\frac{x}{4}-y=2[/tex]

[tex]x-y=8[/tex]-------------------------[tex]x-2=3y[/tex]

Edit: Changed the "news" link.
