Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Add y to both sides, then subtract 3 from both sides to isolate y in the first equation. Doing so gives: y = 4x  3 The expression for y can be substituted into the second equation: 7x  9y = 2 and after substitution we have 7x  9(4x  3) = 2 Now we simplify and solve for x: 7x  36x + 27 = 2 (7  36)x + 27 = 2 (36  7)x + 27 + 2 = 0 (29)x + 29 = 0 29 = 29x 29/29 = x 1 = x Now plug the value for x back into the one of the original equations to get y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We isolated y earlier to get y = 4x  3 If we substitute x = 1 into that equation, we get y.
