2x+5y=-2 (substitute the y you've found into one of the previous equations) 2x + -10=-2 2x=8 x=4

You know there's no question right, therefore i made my own.

here is the answer.

3x+2y = 8 2x+5y = -2 x+8y = -12

that was on my maths gcse paper todayx= 4y= -2

daughter says thats one she got right then

Took this maths paper earlier too, got x= 4 and y=-2 as far as I can remember! How did you guys find it?

lol i feel better about that now as well then after seeing this thread and knowing that your daughter got it right as well looool

I found it really good! i got scared with the last question cuz i found it a tad easy and thought i got it wrong lol! Spent about 20 mins at the end just being bored and going through it umpteen times loool how did you find it?

Ah same I had it too I made the ys the same because in all of our practices we never had to put the x's the same I worked my way around it until I got 4 for x and some how -2 for y but crossed both answers out although the 4 is still in my working out.

Thanks guys

What did you get for the last question?

Im slow today.

3x+2y = 8 2x+5y = -2

x = 4 y = -2

3x is 34 or 3x4? 2y is 2-2 or 2x-2?

Alot of people got 32? Which is what I got. I just put it cause it was the last minute. I put lots of working out (breaking down the 5 marks) You get 1/2 marks for just the answer i'd say.

Yeah I thought it was pretty reasonable! Fingers crossed for the calculator being similar :thumbsup:

I got 29 degrees for the circle theorems one, pretty sure it was right as most of my mates got the same answer ;-)

x= 4

y= -2

2x+5y=-2 (times by 3)

6x+4y=16

6x+15y=-6

take away.

-11y=22

y=-2

2x+5y=-2 (substitute the y you've found into one of the previous equations)

2x + -10=-2

2x=8

x=4

here is the answer.

3x+2y = 8

2x+5y = -2

x+8y = -12
