Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so I don't get this.. what am I doing wrong? The equations do not equal up. Here is what I got: y = 3(1)+5 = 6 y = 2(7)+5 = 12 y = 3(5)+5 = 10 y = 2(0)+5 = 5 y = 3(2)+5 = 7 y = 2(1)+5 = 4 y = 3(0)+5 = 5 y = 2(5)+5 = 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 3(0)+5 = 5 y = 2(5)+5 = 10 The trouble is that x = 0 and you replaced x with 5 in the second part.
