In this page elimination method questions 7 we are going to see solution of seventh problem from the worksheet elimination method worksheet.

Question 7

Solve the following system of linear equations by elimination-method

13 x+ 11 y = 70 ,  11 x + 13 y = 74

Solution:

13 x+ 11 y = 70   -------- (1)

11 x + 13 y = 74 -------- (2)

There are two unknowns in the given equations. By solving these equations we have to find the values of x and y. For that let us consider the coefficients of x and y in both equation.

Adding first and second equation we get

24 x + 24 y = 144

Dividing whole equation by 24 we get  x + y = 6  ------- (3)

Subtracting first and second equation we get

2 x – 2 y = -4

Dividing the whole equation by 2 = > x – y = -2  ------- (4)

x +  y = 6

x –  y = -2

---------------

2 x = 4

x =4/2

x = 2

now we have to apply the value of x in either given equations to get the value of another variable y

Substitute x = 2 in the 3rd equation

2 + y = 6

Y = 6 – 2

Y = 4

Solution :

x = 2

y = 4

verification:

13 x+ 11 y = 70

13(2) + 11(4) = 70

26 + 44 = 70

70 = 70          elimination method questions 7 elimination method questions 7
