Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's not two equations, it's like one all together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02.5x3(3.25xy)=13? :S

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just plug it into the second equation to get y? :/

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