Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x  y = 137 ...........(1) y = 2x + 99 ..............(2) substitute (2) into (1) 3x (2x+99) = 137 try solving it now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got y = 23 for substituting. Now i have 2 more equations that i have to find for graphing and eliminating, can someone help me witht hose 2??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THANK YOUU!! 2.) 2x + y = 1 x + 4y = 10 3.) 2x + y = 1 3x  y = 16 And i have to solve it by substituting and the other by graphing:\

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for 2) by elimination 2x+y=1...........(1) x+4y = 10.......(2) (2) x 2 2x+8y = 20......(3) (3) (1) 7y = 19 k solve it now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, 2x + 8y = 20, i can't solve it no more, can i ? idk, i'm confused! how do you get (3)  (1) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(3)  (1) as in equation (3)  equation(1) to eliminate the 2x which is common in both equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1basically i manipulate (2) so that the x component looks like (1). I then label the manipulated (1) as a new equation (3). (3) and (1) have 2x. so if i take (3)  (1) i will eliminate the 2x and get left with 7y = 19

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x + y = 1......(1) 2x + 8y = 20...(3) (3)  (1) 2x  2x +8y  y = 20  (1) 7y = 19
