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 xaxis.
Write the points where the graphs of the equations intersect the yaxis.
Add the equations to eliminate x.
