Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Rearrange the second equation and you will get the following equations: 6x2y=10 4x+2y=5 Solve to get: 10x=15 x=15/10=3/2 Substitute the value of x into one of the equations to get y: 4(3/2)+2y=5 6+2y=5 2y=1 y=1/2 Therefore, x=3/2 and y=1/2 You can substitute these values into one or both of the equations to prove the correctness of these values.
