Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well the way i see it is that M+15 = 2d D+15M=10 tho

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try what we did last time substitution m+15 = 2d so then m = 2d  15 so in the second equation d + 15 = m + 10 use m= 2d 15 d+ 15 = (2d15) + 10 you get d + 15 = 2d  5 solve for d you get d = 20 then go back to m + 15 = 2d since d = 20 you get m + 15 = 2(20) so then m = 2(20)  15 = 25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is another way but substitution is usually best if they cant get it...its a little longer but it can help them...you can use elimination and it would work just as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plus she is probably in algebra 1 or something so its elementary............you have to use methods that they can use..........you cant just pull out tricks from upper level math and expect them to reproduce the result.
