Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay well since x = (14y) plug (14y) into the other equation where the x is. in order to solve for a variable the entire equation has to be in terms of one variable.. so: 2(14y)+7y=3 28y+7y=3 2y=3 y=1 so now knowing y=1.. assuming i haven't made any mistakes, you can put that into either equation and then solve for x.. hope this helps?! let me know
