How can 1/3x – 2 = y and 1/4x + 11 = y be set up as a system of equations?
3y – x = –6
4y – x = 44
3y + x = –6
4y + x = 44
3y – 3x = –6
4y – 4x = 44
3y + 3x = –6
4y + 4x = 44

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example, your first equation can be rewritten as follows: \[\frac{x}{3}  2 = y \to x  6 = 3y\] where I have multiplied both sides by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint: you should get this: \[\frac{x}{4} + 11 = y \to x + 44 = 4y\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, if I subtract x, I get: \[x + 44  x = 4y  x\] please simplify
