    no. remember u can add -12x with -84. nd -84 is in the right side of the equal aign. -18x+6x+4y-4y=-138+54 -12x+0=-84 -12x=-84 Divide by -12 both sides to find x. Thanx @TheViper and I wish u the same:)

    -12 divided by -12 is 1 and -84 is 7

    remember u r dividing -12x by -12 nt -12. this leaves u with x and u r right abt getting 7:)

    So ur x becomes 7. To find y plug in this value in either 6x – 4y = 54 or –9x + 2y = –69 and solve

    x=7. Plug this in 6x-4y=54 6(7)-4y=54 42-4y=54 1.Subtract 42 both sides. 2.Divide by -4 both sides to find y.

    no. let me do one step and show. 42-4y=54 Subtract 42 both sides 42-42-4y=54-42 0-4y=12 -4y=12 Nw divide by -4 both sides to find y
