Stuck With Simultaneous Equations? Here Ya Go, A Step By Step Guide On How To Work It Out. Hope It Helps... :)x

1) 4x + 7y = 10 
    2x + 3y = 3

The whole trick in working out simultaneous equations is figuring out a way to eliminate all but one of the variables so that it can be solved for. Once you get one, you start working backward to get the other(s). While this operation can be accomplished

Nice use of colour for the demonstration, a good clear example.

Colourful and explained clearly

explained very well. Nicely laid out and clear to read.

still don't understand

I understood the method, but checking it at the end made no sense to me.

This is really helpful thanks :)

Can you do on power point and quiz

It's very good and clearly written for visual learners like myself! The spacing and colours really work together, however I don't understand why you have to multiply the second equation by 2 in the first place. ^^ Can you explain this for me please?

@smellslikek-pop You multiply it by two so that you can subtract the the equations and terminate the x value else the whole thing just gets messy. That make sense?

I have no idea if you'd gotten the other comment, so to clarify: You multiply the second equation by two so that you can subtract the equations and terminate the x value else the whole thing just gets messy and confusing. That make sense?
