Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Finding values of X and Y in linear simultaneous equations can be very easy. just follow the method mentioned below.
firstly our formula to find X=numerator/denominator and Y=numerator/denominator. ideally if we have value for any one variable we need not calculate the value for the other variable , as it can be easily substituted in the equation.
say our 2 equations are 2x+4y=10 3x+2y=11
As per our formula x= Num/deno. now numerator is obtained by cross multiplying (4*11) and subtracting from it the cross product of (2*10)=44-20=24 and denominator is obtained by cross multiplying (4*3) and subtracting from it the cross product of (2*2)=12-4=8
therefore our value for x = Num/Den = 24/8=3
now we can find the value of Y in similar way. however, it will be time consuming . thus we just substitute the value of X in one of the variable. 2x+4y=10 2(3)+4y=10 y=1
therefore we get our two variables x=3,y=1.
hope this helps for quicker calculations.
For those who are curious how to find value of Y in a similar way the method is mentioned below. i ll just retype the previous equations for better understanding
again for Y the same formula=Num/ Den ( but the multiplication is slightly different) now numerator is obtained by cross multiplying (2*11) and subtracting from it the cross product of (3*10)=22-30=-8 and denominator is obtained by cross multiplying (2*2) and subtracting from it the cross product of (4*3)=4-12=-8
thus Y=num/den=-8/-8=1 y=1.
now we can find the value of X, by substituting the value of Y in any equations, as we did above.
