Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would choose the elimination method because the two original equations do not have x or y with a 1 coefficient. Part 2. Multiply the first equation by 4 as I intend to eliminate the x. 12x + 8y = 28. Now multiply the second equation by 3 getting: 12x  9y=6 Now subtract the two adjusted equations  0x 17y=34 divide by 17 getting y=2 substitute for y in first original equation 3x + 2(2) = 7 3x + 4 =7 3x=74 = 3 x=1
