# Q1.    Solve the following pair of linear equations by the elimination method and the substitution method :                    (ii)    $3x + 4 y = 10 \ \textup{and} \ 2x - 2y = 2$

Elimination Method:

Given, equations

$\\3x + 4 y = 10............(1) \ \textup{and}\\ \ 2x - 2y = 2..............(2)$

Now, multiplying (2) by 2 we, get

$\\4x -4 y =4............(3)$

Now, Adding (1) and (3), we get

$\\3x+4y+4x -4 y =10+4$

$\Rightarrow 7x=14$

$\Rightarrow x=2$

Putting this value in (2) we, get

$2(2)-2y=2$

$\Rightarrow 2y=2$

$\Rightarrow y=1$

Hence,

$x=2\:and\:y=1$

Substitution method :

Given, equations

$\\3x + 4 y = 10............(1) \ \textup{and}\\ \ 2x - 2y = 2..............(2)$

Now, from (2) we have,

$y=\frac{2x-2}{2}=x-1.......(3)$

substituting this value in (1)

$3x+4(x-1)=10$

$\Rightarrow 3x+4x-4=10$

$\Rightarrow 7x=14$

$\Rightarrow x=2$

Substituting this value of x in (3)

$\Rightarrow y=x-1=2-1=1$

Hence,

$x=2\:and\:y=1$
