1) 2W=3X and W+Z=X+Y what is Y in terms of W?
(i caught myself stuck on this when reviewing, when i had gotten it right the first time around :S)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you'll be able to find Y in terms of W and Z to get 3X in 2nd equation, you multiply W+Z=X+Y by 3 so that you can replace '3X' by '2W' (from first equation.) what u get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats what i am saying, you won't be able to find it ONLY in terms of W , it seems impossible to me..... unless more equations are given.....
