What is the best first step to solve the system using elimination? 6x – 5y = 4 9x + y = –17
best first step? there is no mathical basis for choosing a best that I know of .... maybe in stats, but we all know that stats aint real math
a simple first step would be to scale the under by 5
cancel out the y's first
