6x-1 = 2x + 1 6x-1+1 = 2x + 1+1 ... Add 1 to both sides. 6x = 2x + 2 6x - 2x = 2x + 2 - 2x ... Subtract 2x from both sides. 4x = 2 x = ???

x = 2 does NOT make 4x = 2 true
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
4x = 2 4*2 = 2 ... replace x with 2 8 = 2 ... this is false

if 4x = 2, then what must x be?

I don't even know anymore
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
divide both sides by 4

2/4 = ???

0.5
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep or 1/2
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
now that you know x = 0.5, you can use this to find y
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
by plugging that x value into any equation with x & y in it, then solving for y
