# Sim Equation C1 Watch

My attempt was poor. I realised 13 goes into 78 6 times so equated with and expanded. I also found y and x from the equations and tried to sub them into the seconds one, however they gave awful fractions to deal with.

Show attempt.
3. I definitely got it right. I just made a reaally stupid error. Herp derp. I thought -9-11=-19 whereas it equals -20, this was when I was completing the square. I've learnt loads from TSR. I'm getting back on track academically. Last time I posted loads of threads and got banned for it. Is there any way of deleting threads you started?

Combine to get a quadratic in y
5. I perfectly understand now. Ahhh . prsom. Good working. I suppose it's good to think about something in different ways.

I don't really understand, but the working seems better and more interesting that mine. prsom.
What don't you understand?

When you did simultaneous equations like this at GCSE what method(s) were you taught?
7. My mind really hasn't been working as sharply today. It's maybe because I' a tad tired.

Are you happy with the method now?
