Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright :) so first, manipulate the 2nd equation so that it equals x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like so x+3/2y=12 3/2y 3/2y \(x=\Large\frac{3}{2}y\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean ** \(x=\large\frac{3}{2}y + 12\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then we plug that in to the second equation \(6(\large\frac{3}{2}+12)\)2y=50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then distribute :) \(6(\large\frac{3}{2}+12)2y=50\) 9+722y=50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from here, add like terms 9+722y=50 632y=50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then subtract 63 from both sides 632y=50 63 63  2y=13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lastly, divide 13 by 2y. then you'll be able to solve for y :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Ami22 I hope you've found this helpful! I will tell you how to solve for x in a little bit, alright? my mom wants me to go pick up a few things from the store. In the meantime, could you medal me? All you have to do is click on the blue best response button next to my name. Thank you :)
