Stuck with simultaneous equations? Here ya go, a step by step guide on how to work them out. Hope it helps.

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. Once you get one, you start working backwards to get the other(s). While this operation can be accomplished in

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?
