    Help! Algebra

    I need help. It's been too long since I took algebra.

    Can someone solve this for me?

    1717X + 845Y = 1,000,000

    Re: Help! Algebra

    You can solve for either variable, but it won't give you a number answer unless you have a 2nd equation with the same two variables.

    1 variable, 1 equation = numerical answer
    2 variables, 2 equations = numerical answer
    etc.

    Re: Help! Algebra

    Which variable do you want to solve for? Like cstrunk said, you won't get a numerical answer unless you have another set of equations to go with it.

    Agree. Need two equations with two unknowns.

    1717X + 845Y = 1,000,000
    Y = pi
    X is obviously answered by using the formula ax2 + bx + c = 0

    Like others said above, you need a second equation. You can solve for one variable in therms of the other, though.

    Solving for X:
    X = (1000000 - 845Y) / 1717

    Solving for Y:
    Y = (1000000 - 1717X) / 845

    1717X + 845Y = 1,000,000
    X = (1,000,000-845Y)/1717
    Y = (1,000,000-1717X)/845
