    hmm it is 3x-12=0 2x-5=y-(1) x-7=-y-(2) (1)+(2)=>2x-5+x-7=y-y 3x-12=0 Nw using 3x-12=0 Can u find x @anonymous551?

    3x-12=0 +12 +12 3x = 12 --------- x = 4

    x=4 and y=3 is correct. Nw plug in these values in x-7=-y and check if Right hand side = left hand side

    Oh.. Okay. 2x - 5 = y 2(4) - 5 = 3 8 - 5 = 3 True. x-7=-y (4) - 7 = -(3) -3 =-3 true.

    But you need to improve you explanation. If I didn't already know how to do this, I would have been so confused.
