Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No problem once you get "y" you can plug it back in to see if you got the right answer they should equal each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I was wrong. The y's cancel out, so that means that 45=0 which is FALSE so the answer is, NO SOLUTION.
