The two methods are elimination and substitution.

Nothing yet, i know how to do elimination. But i dont know how to substitution or graphing.

Use elimination and find the answer first. All the methods should give the same answer, right?

You said you know how to use elimination. Try multiplying the first equation by $$2$$ and add it to the second equation...

$$ (3x9y=3) (2)$$ 6x  3y= 24

\[3x9y=3 [1]\] \[6x  3y= 24 [2]\] \[2\times [1]\] \[6x18y=6 [3]\] \[[2][3]\] \[(6x  3y)  (6x18y)= (24)(6)\]

AzteckBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[3y+18y=30\] The x's cancel out. Now you can solve for y. Once you solve for y, you can then substitute the y component that you just found, into any one of the equations above to find your xvalue.

If you need further assistance, I will be happy to elaborate it in more simple terms.
