00:00:00.320 --> 00:00:09.400
Solve the simultaneous equations, π₯ minus π¦ equals eight and three π₯ minus five π¦ plus ten equals zero.
00:00:10.080 --> 00:00:15.600
We can begin by taking one of these equations and isolating a variable.
00:00:16.080 --> 00:00:22.640
Letβs go ahead and take π₯ minus π¦ equals eight, since itβs smaller.
00:00:23.000 --> 00:00:25.560
And what weβll do, is weβll solve for π₯.
00:00:26.120 --> 00:00:31.800
So letβs add π¦ to both sides of the equation, which means π₯ is equal to π¦ plus eight.
00:00:32.240 --> 00:00:41.200
So what we can do now is we can take this π₯ equals π¦ plus eight and plug that in for π₯ into the other equation.
00:00:41.640 --> 00:00:49.800
So weβll take this equation and weβll substitute π¦ plus eight in for π₯.
00:00:50.520 --> 00:00:52.800
Now we can use the distributive property.
00:00:53.240 --> 00:01:05.360
Now that weβve taken three times π¦ to get three π¦ and three times eight to get twenty-four, we can combine like terms.
00:01:05.680 --> 00:01:10.800
We have three π¦ and negative five π¦ we can combine, and twenty-four and ten we can combine.
00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:15.320
Now we need to subtract thirty-four from both sides.
00:01:15.760 --> 00:01:18.880
And lastly, divide both sides by negative two.
00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:21.440
Therefore, π¦ is equal to seventeen.
00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:26.840
Now that we have a value for π¦, we can plug it in and solve for π₯.
00:01:27.360 --> 00:01:32.920
So π₯ is equal to seventeen plus eight, which is twenty-five.
00:01:33.400 --> 00:01:39.520
Therefore again, π₯ is equal to twenty-five and π¦ is equal to seventeen.
