System of linear equations solver

This system of linear equations solver will help you solve any system of the form:
ax + by = c

dx + ey = f

Enter a,b, and c into the three boxes on top starting with a.

Enter d,e, and f into the three boxes at the bottom starting with d.

Hit calculate

       a                        b                                         c
x         y          =             

       d                        e                                         f
x         y           =             


Note: Your system should be written in the form above. If not, rewrite the system:

Study this example carefully:

Write 5x − 4 = 2y in the form above

Minus 2y from both sides to get 5x − 2y − 4 = 2y − 2y

We get 5x − 2y − 4 = 0

Add 4 to both sides

5x − 2y − 4 + 4 = 0 + 4

5x − 2y = 4

Here a, b, and c are 5, -2, and 4 respectively
