Solve for x1 and x2

2x1 + 4x2 = 80

3x1 + 1x2 = 60

and then when find x1 multiply by 7

and when find x2 multiply by 9

what is the sum of x1 and x2

Step 1

Consider the equation,

2x1+4x2=80……… (1)

3x1+1x2=60……… (2)

Multiplying by 4 in equation (2) and then subtracting it from equation (1),

2x1+4x2-12x1-4x2 = 80-240

-10x1 = -160

x= -160/-10

x1 = 16

Substituting the value of x1 in equation (1),

Step 2

The values of x1 and x2 are 16 and 12 respectively.
