I took my old Maths GCE Olevel one year early in 1973. I'm quite interested in the debate about educational standards and whether they have slipped over the decades. I found this question on an old 1968 JMB paper, and I haven't found a similar question in any modern GCSE Higher Tier paper. I must admit, the question has me flummoxed. I've tried answering it, but with no success. Here is the question:
Find the value of x and the value of y which satisfy the equations
\(\displaystyle 2x  y = \frac{3}{7}(2x+y) = 6x7y + 4\)
I'd be grateful to anyone who could demonstrate a model solution to the question. Many thanks in advance.
