Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so if you relate that to the square in your problem you can safely say that 2x = 3y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and x = 9 so 2x is 18 and 3y is 27?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13y = 2x so 3y should equal 2 * 9
