Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Look closely. We know that \(y=2x−17\) and we also know that \(y=−3x+13\) so I can have them equal to each other, like \(\large y=2x−17 \text{ & } y=−3x+13 \Rightarrow 2x17 = 3x + 13\) Is this clear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once you find the x value, plug that into either equation to find your y value then you are done...........
