    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

    2.5x-3(3.25x-y)=-13? :S

    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 2.5x-3(3.25x+14)=-13 now solve for x

    2.5x-9.75x-42=-13 -7.25x=29 x=?

    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
