Given: x  y = 9 3x = 6y Solve for y: y = 9  x Subtract x from both sides y = 9 + x multiply by 1 y=x  9 clean it up Substitute y: 3x = 6 * (x  9) multiply 6 into x and 9 Solve for X: 3x = 6x  54 subtract 6x from both sides 3x  6x = 54 3x = 54 Divide by 3 x = 18 Substitute X: y = 9  18 y = 9 We get: x = 18 and y = 9 18  9 = 9 3(18) = 6(9)
