# Solve 2x + 3y = 1

To Solve: 2x + 3y = 11.........(i)

2x - 4y = - 24..........(ii)

Solving by substitution method,

From equation (i)

2x = 11 - 3y..........(iii)

putting value of 2x from equation (iii) to equation (ii)

(11 - 3y) - 4y = - 24

⇒ 11 - 7y = - 24

⇒ - 7y = -35 Putting value of y in equation (iii) we get,

2x = 11 - 3 × 5 = 11 - 15 = - 4

x = Now , putting values of x and y in equation

y = mx + 3

5 = -2 m + 3  Value of m is -1
