(b)

2.      Calculate the value of x and of y that satisfy the following simultaneous linear equations:
$\begin{array}{l}x+6y=12\\ \frac{2}{3}x+2y=6\end{array}$
[4 marks]
$\begin{array}{l}x+6y=12\\ x=12-6y---\left(1\right)\\ \frac{2}{3}x+2y=6\\ \left(×3\right)2x+6y=18\\ \left(÷2\right)x+3y=9---\left(2\right)\end{array}$

Substitute (1) into (2),
12 – 6y + 3y = 9
–3y = –3
y = 1

Substitute y = 1 into (1),
x = 12 – 6(1)
x = 6

3.
Diagram 1

Diagram 1 shows a square ABCD and a right-angled triangle PQR with equal area.
Based on the information, find the value of x.
Hence, find the perimeter, in cm, of the square ABCD.                                                        [4 marks]
$\begin{array}{l}{\left(3x+2\right)}^{2}=\frac{1}{2}\left(4x+8\right)4x\\ 9{x}^{2}+12x+4=8{x}^{2}+16x\\ {x}^{2}-4x+4=0\\ \left(x-2\right)\left(x-2\right)=0\\ x=2\end{array}$
