And 2x-5y=10 I know how to do it, you just subtract the x's from eeach side, but somehow I think Im making a mistake, ro something...Mind showing me how to do it, please explain, as I dont want to just have thw awnser..ANd no thats not the hw, after that I have to say what its parallel to..Anyhow thanks..Confused __________________ __________________ Check out my car forum.. altimacoupes.com what is up vanilla face
 09-19-2006, 03:41 PM #2 BSOD   Join Date: Aug 2006 Posts: 382 Re: Lqqk your first answer is correct...another example if u dont mind reading is for example put a 2 in front of the y making it....2x + 2y = 6....after you get the 2y = -2x + 6 to then divide everything by 2 (from the y)...then making it y = -x +3 the 2nd question would be... -5y = -2x +10 just like the above answer you then want to divide everything by -5 from the y (don't forget the "-" on the 5)....you will then get y = 2/5x -2 (the 2 negatives on the x will cancel them self out making it a positive.) i really hope that helps. Hard stuff to get, but once you do its extremely easy. Make sure to pay attention, you will be using this throughout HS and college. __________________ __________________

I'm in geom too, it really sucks so far...it's not hard, but it's been the biggest waste of my time of anything in my life. I can't wait for Algebra 2, and ultimately, Calculus... ♥♥♥ lawl... I'm really ready to get back to Algebraic math; Geometry is teh suck.

It's only rubbish if you can't understand anything, and get stuck on simple problems. It just takes time, and practice. __________________ Master of common sense. If you don't like it, stop reading.
