Simultaneous Equations - Elimination method Example 4
In these examples the two equations have the same format but now the y terms are the same except for the signs. This requires a slightly different method. Care must be taken over the signs as mistakes can easily be made.
Simultaneous Equations - Elimination method Example 5
In this, the fifth of my examples the two equations have the same format but now the x and y terms are different in each equation. You are now shown how to solve this by making the x terms the same.

Simultaneous Equations - Elimination method Example 6
In these examples, the two equations have the same format but now the x and y terms are different in each equation. You are now shown how to solve this by making the y terms the same.
