# Let us solve the following simultaneous linear equations in two variables by applying cross multiplication method.

Answer :

4(x + 2) + 7(y - x) = 28(2x - 8) (Multiplying both sides by 28)

59x - 7y - 232 = 0

(2y - 3x) + 6y = 3(3x + 4) (Multiplying both sides by 3)

12x - 8y + 12 = 0

3x - 2y + 3 = 0

To solve the equation by cross multiplication method, we use:

Putting the values, we get:

So, and

x = 5 and y = 9
