1. By the method of elimination.

3x + 4y = 10……………………….(i)

2x – 2y = 2 ………………………. (ii)

When the equation (i) and (ii) is multiplied by 2, we get:

4x – 4y = 4 ………………………..(iii)

When the Equation (i) and (iii) are added, we get:

7x = 14

x = 2 ……………………………….(iv)

Substituting equation (iv) in (i) we get,

6 + 4y = 10

4y = 4

y = 1

Hence, x = 2 and y = 1

By the method of Substitution

From equation (ii) we get,

x = 1 + y……………………………… (v)

Substituting equation (v) in equation (i) we get,

3(1 + y) + 4y = 10

7y = 7

y = 1

When y = 1 is substituted in equation (v) we get,

A = 1 + 1 = 2

Therefore, A = 2 and B = 1
