Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To eliminate one of the variables, make one of equations have equal variables just negative and positive. To do this, multiply the second equation by 3 to get y to 3y, but you must multiply the whole equation. 15x3y=57 2x+3y=6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Add the equations together now! 15x+2x=17x 57+6=51 17x=51 x=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When u multiply the second equation by 2 u get 10x2y=38. Let us name that as equation (3). The resultant equation u get by multiplying the first equation by 5 is 10x+15y=30. Let us name this equation(4). Subtracting (3) from (4) (4)(30=> 10x+15y10x+2y=30(38) 17y=68 y=68/17 y=4
