rearrange the equation of 2xy=6 into terms of y first.

2xy=6 (bring the y to the right hand side so + y on both sides) and also (bring the six to the left hand side by 6 on both sides) 2x6=y y=2x6

1) y=2x6 2) y=3x+19 we want to find the x value and to do this we have to get rid of the y value. Since we rearranged the first equation already in terms of y, we can directly solve for x now.

yy= 0 2x3x becomes 2x+3x=5x 619=25 0=5x25 5x25=0 5x=25 x=25/5 x=5
