Hello. I'm trying to solve a system of equations problem (for my Partial Fraction Decomposition problem)...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1 = -4 + 2B + 2C + D + E

3 = 4 - 2B + 2C - D + E

3 = -25 + 20B + 10C + 4D + 2E

5 = 25 - 20B + 10C - 4D + 2E

So that boils down to..

1 = 2C + E

3 = 2C + E

3 = 10C + 2E

5 = 10C + 2E

right??

I tried substitution, but that didn't work. Elimination doesn't work, either... So what else? I'm pretty sure you can do it graphically, but I can't remember...

Help, please! I'm doing this last minute (I know I shouldn't be, but I desperately need help!)
