Equation A: y = x + 1
Equation B: y = 4x + 5
Which of the following steps can be used to find the solution to the set of equations?
x + 1 = 4x + 5
x = 4x + 5
x + 1 = 4x
x + 5 = 4x + 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look the value of y in the first equation is x + 1 correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so when you substitute it into the second equation, you put x + 1 instead of y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no you're not getting it.... y = x + 1 in the first equation second equation y = 4x + 5 put x + 1 instead of y in the second equation you get: x + 1 = 4x + 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you just substitute the value in the first equation into the second they're not asking you to solve it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know that, but I'd also want to know how to solve it for other questions..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How you would solve for it: \(x + 1 = 4x + 5\\1 = 3x + 5\\4=3x\\ \dfrac{4}{3}=x\)
