Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Subtract the two given equations getting 5y=5, or y=1 that is all you need to do as there is only one choice that has y = 1, the third choice (12, 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That was the lazy way, let me check and actually solve for x, substituting 1 for y in the first equation: x 2(1)=14 x+2=14 x=142=12 Yup
