# Which of these strategies would eliminate a variable in the system of equations? 10x+4y=-2 5x-2y=2  trillsmith

thus, the first answer choice, y = sec x, is the correct one dtilton2003

it’s supposed to be -4+45=41

step-by-step explanation: litzy9506

Option A: Multiply the top equation by , then add the equations.

Step-by-step explanation:

OPTION A:

When we multiply the top equation by we get:  Now, we add the second equation to this, we get:

5x + 2y + 5x - 2y = -1 + 2 The 'y' variable is eliminated.

OPTION B: Note that multiplying the second equation by 2 would result in:

10x - 4y = 4. To eliminate 'y' we should add this equation to the top equation not subtract it. So, this option is wrong.

OPTION C:

Adding the equations also will result in a equation of two variables, viz:

15x + 2y = 0 which does not eliminate any variable at all.

So, OPTION C is also wrong.

Hence, OPTION A is the answer.  ### Other questions on the subject: Mathematics Mathematics, 21.06.2019, aylin5044 Mathematics, 21.06.2019, Quickshotgirl
