3x-2y=1 how to find the value of x and y?

HI,
I am very weak in match, i have equation like
1. 3x-2y=1 h
2. 3x+y = x+3

Hi;

What is that h doing there?

I do not understand, aren't you solving a simultaneous set of linear equations? What has that to do with set theory? Is that h a variable?

quiz is this  .    find x and y if (3x+y, x-1) = (x+3, 2y-2x)

sorry h is mistake  , h is nothing

I am getting x = 1 and y = 1.

yes, perfect,  is there any method or something else to find value of x and y?

There are several methods:

Form the simultaneous set:

Do you know how to solve that?

Clean this one up a bit by subtracting x from both sides.

Clean up the second one

Subtract 2y from both sides.

We now have

how do you think what to add or not?

Just trying to get it into the form of all the variables on the left and all the numbers on the right so we can make the next bunch of moves.

Re: 3x-2y=1 how to find the value of x and y?

We would like to subtract or add the bottom equation from the top one and make one variable disappear. But when I do that 2x - 3x = x, that did not disappear and y + (-2y) = y so no luck there either.

If I multiply the top equation by 3 I get

Now if I multiply the second equation by 2 I get

So I have changed the equations again to
