it's not two equations, it's like one all together

Yeah, x= .75 isnt right. Solve for y in one of the equations, then plug that expression in for y into the other. Then you can solve for x

You did that wrong. The purpose is to have one variable to solve for. You still have 2. lets solve for y in the second equation y=3.25x+14 now plug the expression into the other equation for y 2.5x3(3.25x+14)=13 now solve for x

What did you get for x? dont you wanna solve for y also?

just plug it into the second equation to get y? :/

If you're doing systems of equations i assume you should know how to solve a simple equation...i did all of it except one step.. x=29/7.25 x=4

Input 4 into one of the equations for x and then solve for y
