Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have an equation containing only x when you substitute y with x.Then solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The first equation we have is 2x = y, that is the same as y=2x. The second equation we have is 6x + 4y = 14. Now, we put y=2x into the second equation. That is whenever we see "y" in the second equation, we rewrite it as "2x" So, we get: 6x + 4 (2x) = 14 Can you solve this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know that \(2x = y\), right? So can you say that \(6x + 4y =14\) can be written as \(6x + 4(2x) = 14\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so y = 2! so y = 2, and x= 1! no?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, it's not \(6x + 4y = 14\). I got my reply wrong :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:DD thanks so MUCHJ GUYS! im trying so hard to finish math online course for tomrrow... it closes on tomorrow, and I've got 2 units to do online!!! (each unit has like 4 lessons and 4 quizes) I'm kinda bad at the subtituation method and stuff, wish I would understand! it techinically is tomorrow, I mean it's the very very very early morning right now!!i know! I'm trying to use openstudy to help me too... (that's how I stumbled upon this site today!)
