Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I might be too late here but the far easier method is to solve for x in the second equation and sub that into the first equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea anytime you are using substitution and you have an equation where one of the variables has a coefficient of 1 then use that equation to solve for that variable that way you will not run into fractions as much.
