Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, @overtonka, I think @skullpatrol would be delighted to see you make a better effort, today. Divide the first equation by 3 and show what you get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since we are using substitition, that would be the things to do. Please abandon those sillylooking '1's. We don't usually write those unless we are trying to make a point.
