Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would find x first. then, when i have that answer, i use it to find y. i was taught that way. but maybe your way does work better.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Originally, you said "divide both sides by x". I was waiting to see how you would use that to solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I want to see the method where you divide both sides by x only.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the way i was taught is you find x first. then when you plug in x, you could find y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What was that drivel between Durviel and Hero lol...Thought you were supposed to be helping... I will help. So we have: 4x + 7y = 6 and 6x + y = 2 The correct first step is to multiply the second equation by 7 to get: 42x + 7y = 14 We can then eliminate the 7 by subtracting equation 1 (unchanged) from equation 2. :)
