Solve the system using the elimination method:

6a + 3b = 12

         2a= 8-b



Expert Answer

Step 1

We have given two equations:

6a + 3b = 12     equation 1

         2a= 8-b     equation 2

Step 2

We need to find the solution of system using elimination method.

Consider equation 2,

2a = 8 – b

Multiply both sides by 3

6a = 24 – 3b

Next, we subtract first equation from 6a =24 – 3b

Step 3

We get,...
