# Solve the following pair of linear equations by the substitution method √2x+√3y=0, √3x−√8y=0 - Mathematics

Solve the following pair of linear equations by the substitution method

sqrt2x + sqrt3y = 0

sqrt3x - sqrt8y = 0

#### Solution

sqrt2x + sqrt3y = 0

sqrt3x - sqrt8y = 0

From equation (1), we obtain

x = (-sqrt3y)/sqrt2

Substituting this value in equation (2), we obtain

sqrt3(-(sqrt3y)/sqrt2) - sqrt8y = 0

-(3y)/sqrt2-2sqrt2y = 0

y(-3/sqrt2 - 2sqrt2) = 0

y = 0   (4)

Substituting this value in equation (3), we obtain x = 0

∴ x= 0, y= 0
