Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide the 2nd equation by 11 to get: x 1 y = 0 then get an expression for x from this by adding x to both side: x 1 y + x = 0 + x 1 y = x now substitute this expression for x into the first equation and solve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rewite the equations as 11y = 11x 11 then y = (x 1) sub into the 1st equation 9x 4(x 1) = 9 then solve for x so I think x = 1 and y = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are given two equations with two unknowns in each equation (x and y). the idea is to eliminate one of the unknowns and then solving the resulting equation with just one unknown.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your 2nd equation had a common factor of 11 in every term  so if you divide by 11, you get a much simpler equation
