One Equation, Two Variables
Usually we say that if we have two variables, we need two equations to solve, and if we have three variables, we need three equations to solve. This is not 100% true, however, and the problem below is a good example of a single equation in two variables which produce a single ordered pair solution.
Solve for the ordered pair (x,y) such that x2 + y2 - 2x + 4y = -5
SolutionIn order to make it feasible for teachers to use these problems in their classwork, no solutions are publicly visible, so students cannot simply look up the answers. If you would like to view the solutions to these problems, you must have a Virtual Classroom subscription.
Find all ordered pairs (x,y) which solve the following non-linear system of equations.
x(x - 2y) - 4 = 2y(x - 2y)
x + 2y = 10
Find all ordered pairs (x, y) such that:
3x - y = 10
x2 + 8x - y2 + 3y = 17
Find all ordered pairs (x,y) which solve the following system of equations:
x3 + 12xy2 = 7x2y
x + y = 20
Find the sum of x and y, if the following are true:
(x + 2)(x - 1) = (y - 12)(y + 3)
(x + 1)(x + 3) = (y - 5)(y - 7)
Find the sum of x and y if x and y are positive numbers such that x2 + 3xy + y2 = 424 and xy = 100
Solve for m and n.
(m + n)2 - 10(m + n) + 24 = 0
(m - n)2 + 6(m - n) + 8 = 0
For the ordered pair (x,y) the product of x and y is 108. If x + 2y = 30, find all possible ordered pairs (x,y).
Find all ordered pairs (x, y) such that
2x + xy + y = 18
x - y = 2
I have picked three positive integers for the lottery, as follows: The sum of my numbers is 54. The sum of my numbers, plus the sum of two of my numbers, is 84. The sum of the squares of my numbers is 1034. What are the three integers?
The sum of a number and twice another number is ten less than the product of the numbers. The sum of the numbers is ten. What are all possible numbers that satisfy these criteria?
