ok. first you need to have one of the equations in terms of x or y. Lets take x-y=3. solve for x ineedyouubiebs
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it doesnt matter which one i start with?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, it does not matter. but x-y=3 is easier to work with.

Solve for y, x-y=3 -x -y=-x+3 times -1 y=x-3 x=-2y-6 -6 x-6=-2y divde buy -2 -1/2x+3=y or y=-1/2x+3
anonymous
  • anonymous
would it be (-2y-6)-y=3 ?? please correct me if im wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
@ineedyouubiebs , that would be correct... ^^^
anonymous
  • anonymous
omgggg yesss!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes that is correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
@dpaInc and how would i add like terms to that...i mean would i have to distribute?
anonymous
  • anonymous
technically you are distributing a "1" in 1(-2y-6)-y=3 but since it is only a positive 1, just get rid of the parenthesis to get: -2y - 6 - y = 3 now combine like terms and solve....
anonymous
  • anonymous
y=-3
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct... now solve for x...
anonymous
  • anonymous
and how would i do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you have x = -2y - 6 from the beginning....
anonymous
  • anonymous
just plug in the value that you found for y: x = -2(-3) - 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
x=6-6
anonymous
  • anonymous
simplify that....
anonymous
  • anonymous
x=0
anonymous
  • anonymous
you're basically done... and whenever you need to see if your answer is correct or not, plug in the values of both x and y into BOTH equations. if they both turn out to be true statements, your answer is correct.

okay thank you soo much=D can you help me in another problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sure.... close this question and post a new one.... :)
