Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[y=4x+{1\over3}\]\[3x12y=1\]substitute the value of y:\[3x12(4x+{1\over3})=1\]distribute the 12:\[3x48x4=1\]add 4 to both sides:\[3x48x=5\]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 :)
