This looks like you can do the same thing as last time. can you write down the equation we have to solve?

yes, I know that. but both right hand sides equal y so they equal each other. can you write that down?

y=5x6 y=8x6 if 5x6 equals y, you can replace y in the 2nd equation with 5x6. Can you write that down?

am i doing y=5x6

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you have 2 equations y=5x6 y=8x6 the 1st equation says y is 5x6 that means you can replace y in the 2nd equation with 5x6. after you do that what is this new equation?

what happened to the other side and what happened to the = ? If we had y= A and y= SOMETHING we can replace y with A in the 2nd equation: A= SOMETHING can you use that same idea with y=5x6 y=8x6

sorry so it would be 8x6=5x6

yes. now that you have an equation, you can find x I would start by adding +6 to both sides 8x 6+6 = 5x6+6 can you simplify this?

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I would simplify 6+6 to 0

okay, i go that then whats next

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes and you can simplify 5x+0 , right? what do you get?

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I get 8x= 5x if you add +8x to both sides you get 8x8x = 8x5x of course 8x  8x is 0 (you have 8x and take away 8x, to get 0) 0= 8x5x on the right side, you have 8x and take away 5x, what do you have left?
