i did 3y + 2x = 36 and 4x + 6y = 72 to try to do eliminationt but.... that doesn't make any sense...
what do you know about the sides of a square?

they equal 72
but how do the sides of a square relate to each other?
and i mean any square not just this one
oops i few the picture wrong.... it's supposed to be 3y not 3x...
yea I figured from the equations that was supposed to be a y
the sides of the square equal each other?
so if you relate that to the square in your problem you can safely say that 2x = 3y
so 2x = 3y and 8x= 72?
and x = 9 so 2x is 18 and 3y is 27?
3y = 2x so 3y should equal 2 * 9
hmm but.... myeh so y = 6?
yes good work
hehe thanks
