To solve the system of equations 9a + 2b = 10 and 9a - 2b = 10, you can use the method of elimination. Add the two equations together:

(9a + 2b) + (9a - 2b) = 10 + 10

This simplifies to:

18a = 20

Now, divide both sides by 18 to solve for 'a':

a = 20/18

Simplify:

a = 10/9

Now that we have found the value of 'a', substitute it back into one of the original equations to solve for 'b'. Let's use the first equation:

9a + 2b = 10

Substitute 'a = 10/9':

9(10/9) + 2b = 10

This simplifies to:

10 + 2b = 10

Subtract 10 from both sides:

2b = 0

Now, divide both sides by 2:

b = 0

So, the solution to the system of equations is 'a = 10/9' and 'b = 0'.
