# Maths on Gonna die!!!!! Watch

1. Can anyone help me o this equation. Ho do I do it??

x+2y=9
y=x+3
help!!!! I can't do simultaneous equations at all
2. At just a cursory glance, x = 1, y = 4?

Edit: Why am I getting negged? Geez, you help someone, honestly, and you get negged for it. The answer was obvious to me, if the OP understands and masters the method she'll be able to do it deductively in her mind too.

sub y=x+3 in the first equation and solve

x+2(x+3)=9
x+2x+6=9
3x=3
x=1

y=1+3=4

x=1 y=4

job done

why was a negged for this you abhorrent people?

Get both equations in terms of y...

i.e.
x+2y=9

2y=9-x

y= 4.5 -0.5x

Since the other equation is y=x+3,

x+3=4.5-0.5x

Can you do the rest?

If you isolate x therefore x = 9 - 2y

do the same with the second equation therefore you will have two values from the two equations for x - then try
6. Thanks so much I reckon I ca do suns like these now thanks. Xoxo
7. how i miss gcse maths.

don't you mean one of the easier questions?

Agreed, I'd say vectors would be one of the hardest questions on a gcse maths paper at times

for me, at gcse level the hardest thing was probability and transformations

Well there are questions that make you think, and questions that just require you to follow a process.

Yes, you have to learn the process and practise it, but when you've done that you can repeat it almost without thinking - this is one of those questions.
for me, at gcse level the hardest thing was probability and transformations
Probability at gcse is much easier than S1, with probability you dealt mostly with mutually exclusive events, at alevel you have conditional probability etc. And yes transformations, I didn't even find them out until C1 and they appeared on my gcse paper whilst I stared blankly at them

Negged because you shouldn't give full worked solutions on the maths forum
