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

4. saifoo.khan

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

So.. what do I do with it?

@yummydum : Apply your brilliant brain over here.

C'mon. I didn't asked you to write a novel. -_-

$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 :)
