Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so I would take 6x+y=26 and solve for y and then plug that into 2x+9y=66 for y and solve for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well that being said I got y=6x=26 for the y= and for the x= I got y/613/3 is that correct cause I am not positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite sure what you did, but I'll start working it out. Maybe you can see it that way. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=6x+26 so then the other equation becomes 2x+9(6x+26)=66

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you solve for x from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yahtzee! Now plug in 3 for x into let's say y=6x+26 to get the y value. Then your ordered pair is (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how do you know which equation to put in so that you get the right answer or does it work with both?
