Solve the simultaneous equation: 2x + 3y = 6, 3x + 2y = 5.

1) 2x + 3y = 6

2) 3x + 2y = 5

We can either use substitution or elimination.

Using elimination:

Multiply equation 1) by 3 and multiply equation 2) by 2.

1) 6x + 9y = 18

2) 6x + 4y  = 10

Equation 1) - Equation 2)

5y = 8

y = 8/5

Substitue y back into either 1) or 2).

6x + (32/5) = 10

6x = 10 - (32/5)

x = 3/5
