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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You 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 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. 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 ?
