Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so yes you are right and after this for we can eliminet the term of y so for we need multiply first equation by 1 and after this you assum thses two equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, how do I eliminate for the 'y' variable? do I multiply the reciprocal of one 'y' variable to one equation? Like for the 1st equation I would multiply '1' to eliminate the 'y'?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2xy=8 5xy=3 multiply by 1 2xy=8 5x+y=3  3x 0 =11 3x=  11 x= 11/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so y= 5x+3 y=5(11/3) +3 =55/3 +3 = (55+9)/3 = 46/3
