Question from Zaheer:

solve simultaneous equations and give answer in fractional form
3x - 2 = 4y +5/3
y + 7 = 2x + 4
would really appreciate some help on this please


I would start by eliminating the fraction in the first equation. To accomplish this multiply both sides of the first equation by 3.

Can you solve the problem now?
