Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sry.. copy and paste made sm typo... but answer will be same 7*(2x3y=11) 2*(7x4y=6) multiplying both sides 13y=65 so y=5 so calculate x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x3y=11 multiply by 4 since it is 4y in the equation below and we want to eliminate y 7x4y=6 multiply by 3 since it is 3y in equation above so we can subtract both to obtain a solution for x => 8x12y=44 21x+12y=18 :now we subtract the bottom one from the top and have a new bottom equation => 8x12y=44 :top remains the same 13x =26 :bottom after subtracting, now we divide both sides by 13 so that we are left with 1x since 13/13=1 and 1x=x on the left giving us the solution to x => x=26/13= 2 we now insert 2 for x into the top equation to obtain y => 8*(2)12y=44 (one could also take the original version: 2*(2)3y=11) <=> 1612y=44 now add 16 to both sides 12y=60 now same as before divide by minus twelve on both sides so we get 1*y=y => y=60/12=5 hope it is clear enough
