Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you just add the two equations, the y will be eliminated. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You have to solve for x and y, concluding with an ordered pair of (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4well elimination is where you eliminate one of the variables to be able to solve the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0add the equations together (x+2x)+(y+y)=(3+3) that should help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Your equations are: x  y = 3 2x + y = 3 In both equations "y" from the first equation, and "+y" from the second equation cancel each other out. Understood?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4therefore lleaving the equation to be x=3 2x=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since they cancel each other, the equation becomes: 3x = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now lets solve for x. Divide both sides for 3, which concludes us with the answer x = 2 Since we have solved for x, our ordered pair would be (2,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4now you take that 2 and plug it into one of the equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4im going to take the xy=3 equation so i plug 2 in for x 2y=3 subtract 2 on both sides y=1 divide by 1 on both sides y=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now, use what you have found as being x= 2, and plug it into your original equation. Lets plug "2" in the position of "x" in equation one: x  y = 3 (2)  y = 3 Bring the 2 to the "other side" but substracting it from 3 y = 3  2 y = 1 Divide by 1 and your answer is y = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now since you have solved x and y, your coordinates of intersection is (2,  1)
