Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What i mean by flip is in the equation x  y = 4 4y  x = 14 I flip the x  y = 4 to x = 4 + y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry equation is supposed to be 7z  3x = 18 Z  5x = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look z has got coefficient 1, so its easy to handle with that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it is a matter of choice, it doesn't matter which one you flip? You will get the same answer out of both?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it doesnt matter which variable you start with, or which equation .... just do what you think is easiest for you to solve with ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that will lead to fractional value, a bot hard..nothing wrong with it anyways

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She came up with 7z = 18 + 3x z + 18 + 3x / 7 / = fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and that is completely usable ..... but does it have to be done that way? no

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then it was 2(18 + 3x / 7)  5x = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since z=z=z=z.... it doesnt matter how you 'solve' for z; its gonna retain the same value thruout the process

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To avoid fractions (which I hate) I would flip the 2z  5x = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you might end up using fractions; dunno ..... i havent solved it ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have 7z  3x = 18 2z = 1 + 5x And now I dk what to do
