Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0set the two equations equal to each other: 2x  12 = 4x  16 solve for x: 4 = 2x thus x = 2 plug this into either equation to find y: y = 2(2)  12 = 4  12 = 8 solution: (2, 8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if y = 2x12 and y = 4x16, then 2x12 = 4x16. solve for x. get y by substituting the value of x in one of the equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since y =2x12 and 4x16, we can say that 2x12=4x16. Now, to solve for x we can add 16 to both sides of the equation. That gives us 2x+4=4x. Since we want x on one side of the equation and the constants on the other, we can subtract 2x from both sides. That gives 4=2x. Now divide both sides by 2 and you have x=2. to find y, substitute x into one of the original equations. y=2x12. Y=2(2)12=8 so, x=2 and y=8
