    The difference of 3y and 12x is 1. 3y - 2x = 1

    y is 1/3 more than 4 times the value of x. I'm not sure about the first one. It can be: y + 1/3 = 4x

    \[y=4x+{1\over3}\]\[3x-12y=1\]substitute the value of y:\[3x-12(4x+{1\over3})=1\]distribute the -12:\[3x-48x-4=1\]add 4 to both sides:\[3x-48x=5\]combine the like terms:\[-45x=5\]divide both sides by -45:\[x=-9\] now plug that value into the first equation:\[y=4(-9)+{1\over3}\]distribute:\[y=-36+{1\over3}\]add:\[y=36{1\over3}\] if those dont work try flipping the 3x and 12x in the second equation :)
