### 4) Solution is (0.25, 5.5)

Solution:

1)

y = 2x – 3 ——- eqn 1

x + y = 18 ——– eqn 2

Rearrange eqn 1

2x – y = 3 ——- eqn 3

Add eqn 2 and eqn 3

x + y = 18

2x – y = 3

( + ) ————

3x = 21

x = 7

Substitute x = 7 in eqn 1

y = 2(7) – 3

y = 14 – 3

y = 11

Thus solution is (x, y) = (7, 11)

2)

y = 0.25x —— eqn 1

x + 4y = 8 ———- eqn 2

Rearrange eqn 1,

0.25x – y = 0 ——- eqn 3

Multiply eqn 3 by 4

x – 4y = 0 —- eqn 4

Add eqn 2 and eqn 4

x + 4y = 8

x – 4y = 0

( + ) ————-

2x = 8

x = 4

Substitute x = 4 in eqn 1

y = 0.25(4)

y = 1

Thus solution is (x, y) = (4, 1)

3.)

y = x + 12 ——- eqn 1

4x + 2y = 27 ——— eqn 2

Rearrange eqn 1,

x – y = -12

Multiply above by 2

2x – 2y = -24 ——- eqn 3

Add eqn 2 and eqn 3

4x + 2y = 27

2x – 2y = -24

( + ) —————

6x = 3

x = 0.5

Substitute x = 0.5 in eqn 1

y = 0.5 + 12

y = 12.5

Thus solution is (x, y) = (0.5, 12.5)

4.)

10x + 3y = 19 ——– eqn 1

y = 2x + 5 ——— eqn 2

Rearrange eqn 2

2x – y = -5

Multiply above equation by 3

6x – 3y = -15 ——- eqn 3

Add eqn 1 and eqn 3

10x + 3y = 19

6x – 3y = -15

( + ) —————-

16x = 4

x = 0.25

Substitute x = 0.25 in eqn 2

y = 2(0.25) + 5

y = 5.5

Thus solution is (0.25, 5.5)
