ok. first you need to have one of the equations in terms of x or y. Lets take xy=3. solve for x ineedyouubiebs

so it doesnt matter which one i start with?

no, it does not matter. but xy=3 is easier to work with.

Solve for y, xy=3 x y=x+3 times 1 y=x3 x=2y6 6 x6=2y divde buy 2 1/2x+3=y or y=1/2x+3

@dpaInc and how would i add like terms to that...i mean would i have to distribute?

dpaInc Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
technically you are distributing a "1" in 1(2y6)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....

and how would i do that?

dpaInc Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you have x = 2y  6 from the beginning....

dpaInc Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
just plug in the value that you found for y: x = 2(3)  6

simplify that....

x=0

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.
