1/2x+1/3y=2......1

1/3X+1/2Y=13/6

SOLVE THE ABOVE LINEAR EQUATIONS BY REDUCING THEM TO A PAIR OF LINEAR EQUATIONS:

###
X/2 + Y/3 = 2 → 3X + 2Y = 12.....(i)
X/3 + Y/2 = 13/6 → 2X + 3Y = 13....(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii) we get X = 2
Subtracting (ii) from (i) we get Y = 3
1/x = 2 and 1/y = 3
x = 1/2 and y = 1/3
