22. p.11 Solving Simultaneous Equations For complicated simultaneous equations we use the substitution-elimination method

23. p.12 Example Solve for x and y the simultaneous equations: x + 1 – y + 3 = 4, x + y – 3 = 1 2 3 2 2 Get rid of fractions by Multiplying x + 1 – y + 3 = 4 2 3 x + y – 3 = 1 • 2 2 • (6)(x + 1)– (6)(y + 3) = (6)4 • 2 3 2x + 2(y – 3) = 2(1) • (3)(x + 1)– (2)(y + 3) = 24 • 2 2 3x + 3 – 2y - 6 = 24 2x + y – 3 = 1 • 3x– 2y = 27 • 2x + y = 4 • Now solve these simultaneous equations in the normal way • x = 5 and y = -6

24. p.12-13 Example Solve for x, y and z: x + 2y + z = 3 5x – 3y +2z = 19 3x + 2y – 3z = -5 1 2 Label the equations 1, 2 & 3 • Eliminate z from 2 equations 3 5x – 3y +2z = 19 3x + 2y – 3z = -5 2 3 -2x - 4y -2z = -6 x -2 3x + 6y + 3z = 9 x 3 1 1 5 • 3x - 7y = 13 • 6x + 8y = 4 4 • Now solve simultaneous equations 4 & 5 in the usual way We find that: x = 2 y = -1 x + 2y + z = 3 • Sub these values into equation 1 • (2) + 2(-1) + z = 3 • z = 3

25. p.13 Note: If one equation contains only 2 variables then the other 2 equations are used to obtain a second equation with the same two variables • 3x + 2y - z = -3 • 5x – 3y +2z = 3 • 5x + 3z = 14 1 • e.g. Solve 2 3 • Here, from equation 1 and 2, y should be eliminated to obtain an equation in x and z, which should then be used with equation 3
