Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know that y=2x, so plug in 2x instead of y in the second equation and solve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What's (2x)^2? Is it the long answer or like, the one with 2 numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Put it in the standard form for a quadratic equation and then solve by factoring (if it will factor) or by the quadratic formula if it will not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Rearrange the equation so that it is equal to 0. Make the y^2 term positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Also, it should be 42y not 22y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, Mertsj is right, it's easier to replace x other than y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[(2y)(2y+y)=53y^2\] \[(2y)(2)=53y^2\] \[42y=53y^2\] \[3y^22y1=0\] \[(3y+1)(y1)=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did 3y^22y1=0 become (3y+1)(y1)=0 ?
