To eliminate the y terms and solve for x in the fewest steps, by which constants should the equations be multiplied? First equation: 4x − 3y = 34 Second equation: 3x + 2y = 17 The first equation should be multiplied by 2 and the second equation by 3. The first equation should be multiplied by 2 and the second equation by −3. The first equation should be multiplied by 3 and the second equation by 4. The first equation should be multiplied by 3 and the second equation by −4.

    Thanks! :> To eliminate the x-terms and solve for y in the fewest steps, by which constants should the equations be multiplied? First equation: 6x − 5y = 17 Second equation: 7x + 3y = 11 The first equation should be multiplied by 3 and the second equation by −5. The first equation should be multiplied by 3 and the second equation by 5. The first equation should be multiplied by 7 and the second equation by −6. The first equation should be multiplied by 7 and the second equation by 6. I originally said D... but I'm not really sure.
