Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both equations are equal to y, so replace y in the 1st equation with the right hand side of the 2nd equation so you get x  1 = 3x + 3 now you can solve for x. when you get x, substitute it into either of the original equations to find y. hope it helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's the substitution method, all you are doing is finding where the 2 lines intersect. on the number plane.
