If you say that each equation is equal to some y-value, then you can get a system. I assume you mean 1/5x to be \(\frac{1}{5}x\) and 1/3x to be \(\frac{1}{3}x\), correct?
yes youre correct
Alright, then let's just say each side of the equality is equal to y. Then we can have this: \(y = \frac{1}{5}x -2\) \(y=\frac{1}{3}x + 8\)

okay sounds good
can you show me whats next
Well, that's just the set up in order to turn it into a system of equations. Did you need to solve it as well?
well let me show you the answer choices
5y-5x=-10 3y-3x=24 5y-5x=-10 3y+3x=24 5y+x=-10 3y+x=24 5y-x=-10 3y-x=24
Oh, okay, so then we have to turn it into some sort of general form. Well, if we start with \(y = \frac{1}{5}x-2\), we first want to get rid of the fraction. Do you know how to eliminate fractions in these equations?
i knnow you would have to multiply
Yeah. You would multiply by an LCD of any fractions in the equation. Of course the only denominator we have is a 5, so we just multiply everything by 5. Are you comfortable doing that?
can you please do it for me. i already tried
Well, you see why multiplying everything by 5 is what we need to do, yes?
yes i do see that
So if I do this: \(5*y = 5*\frac{1}{5}x - 5*2\) I get \(5y = x - 10\) That okay on your end?
ok.... so which one of my answer choices would that be?
Well, all of your answer choices have the 5y part as being positive and the number by itself. So that means I want to subtract x from both sides. \(5y = x - 10\) \(-x -x\) \(5y - x = -10\)
okay thank you so much
You're welcome
