The picture is screaming out loud that\[y+12=6x,\\y=3x.\]Can you solve this system?

You're trying to solve for \(y\). So, solve for \(x\) in one equation and plug the result into the second equation:\[x=\frac13y,\\y+12=6(\frac13y),\\y+12=2y,\\y=12.\]I strongly suggest you review your notes.

so since y = 12 I can solve for x now?

No because the question asks you to solve for \(y\).
