Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first, choose which one you want to eliminate, s or t? if you eliminate s, you'll get t if you eliminate t, you'll get s first, let's eliminate t to eliminate t, i need to multiplied the first equation by 2 so i have 10t on both equation 4s  5t =18 multiplied by 2 is 8s  10t =36 now i can do elimination 8s  10t =36 6s + 10t = 8  + (do addition) 8s + 6s 10t + 10t = 36 8 14s = 28 s = 28/14 s=2
