Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hello there, Discord. Rainbow Dash is here to help. Isolate any variable in the first equation then plug it to either second or third equation. Does this make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Saying, I want to isolate m in first equation.\[3m  2n + 4p = 15\]\[3m = 15 + 2n  4p\]\[m = \frac{15 + 2n  4p}{3} = 5 + \frac{2}{3}n  \frac{4}{3}p\] Ok, now I know m. Plug it into second or third equation. Does that make sense?
