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)

you'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 ?
