We will get rid of the q and find p. Multiply 3p +2q = 9 by 3 and add it to the other equation.

So 9p + 6q = 27. Add it to second equation. 13p + zero q = 52

p = 4. Put 4 back into any equation and get q. q = -3/2

Another way is to graph the two lines on graph paper and see where they intersect.

]]>I know this may look easy for some people but I'm just grasping it. Please look at the following simultaneous equation and see what you get. Thanks alot.

3p + 2q = 9

4p - 6q = 25

Please let me know how you worked it out as well.

Thanks
