Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is false. You get lots of math. Now, multiply everything in that first equation by 2 and we can talk.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can start by eliminating y, or at list representing it with it's relative value to x. Just shift around the equation 2x+y=3 y=32x There, now we have y And we can just put it into the second equation. x2(32x)=4 Now just solve this one. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if x2(32x)=4 is a little confusing, you can simplify it down to 5x6=4 This can easily be rearranged to find x.
