Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x+2y=6 <i'll choose this equation and i will solve for y 6y= x+18 \(\Large x+2y=6\) add x to both sides \(\Large x+x+2y=6+x\) \(\Large 2y=6+x\) divide everything by 2 \(\Large(\frac{1}{2}) 2y=(\frac{1}{2})(6+x)\) \(\Large y=3+ \frac{1}{2}x\) Plug what we have for the equation for y into the y in this equation 6y= x+18
