Help Please and rewarding after :) An unknown number y is 12 more than an unknown number x. The number y is also x less than 17. The equations to find x and y are shown below. y = x + 12 y = −x + 17 Which of the following statements is a correct step to find x and y? Multiply the equations to eliminate y. Write the points where the graphs of the equations intersect the x-axis. Write the points where the graphs of the equations intersect the y-axis. Add the equations to eliminate x.
