If you wanted to eliminate the y variable by adding the two equations in the following system, what could be your first step? 5x − 6y = 6 x − y = 12 Add the two equations together Multiply the second equation by −6 Multiply the first equation by −6 Multiply the second equation by 6

You can arrive at the correct choice by seeing which choice gives the requires result (eliminate the y variable). Would adding the two equations together eliminate the y variable when -6y + (-y) = -7y ?

Correct. Looking at the second choice, if you multiply the second equation by -6 the y variable becomes -y * -6 = 6y Would adding the two equations together eliminate the y variable when -6y + 6y = 0 ?
