WILL FAN AND MEDAL
A set of equations is given below:
Equation H: y = −x + 2
Equation J: y = 3x − 4
Which of the following steps can be used to find the solution to the set of equations?
a.−x = 3x − 4
b.−x +2 = 3x
c.−x + 2 = 3x − 4
d.−x + 1 = 3x + 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint: if y = some expression in x and y also = another expression in x then these 2 expressions are equal to each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a simple case: if y = a and y = b then a = b because they are both equal to y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. But how does that explain this problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well look at the question y = 2 different things right  the 2 equations have 2 different expressions of x equal to y. now check out the options to see if these 2 expressions have an '=' between them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess, to be honest I'm just very confused about this whole system and was wondering if somebody could take me through the steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well there only one step  refer back to y = a and y = b instead a theres x + 2 and instead of b there is what? and these are equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so the next step is to put these equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look through the options to see which one does that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = x + 2 y = 3x  4 therefor x + 2 = 3x  4
