Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because if y=5x3 (from the first equation) and you substitute it into the next equation it becomes: 10x+2(5x3)=6 10x+10x6=6 0=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if x is three, then y =153=12 plug that in to the other equation and: 10x+24=6 10x=24 x=2.4 so you can pick any number for one of the variables and substitute it in for the other one
