b: 4x + 3y = 6 and 3y = 5
c: x + y = 7 and x  y = 12
d: 3x  2y = 8 and 4x  5y = 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For a and b, the simplest would probably be substitution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It would be C because you can already eliminate the x or y. If you subtract the two equations, you can get rid of the x. If you add them, you can eliminate the y.
