then substitute the x you got in that equation for the x in this equation: 3x−6y=72

  • anonymous
so if you have solved for x in the first equation I gave you, you should get: x=2y+24
anonymous
  • anonymous
So the equation you should get after substituting would be: 3(2y+24)−6y=72

then simplify

to get 72=72

then subtract 72 from each side to get 0=0, which means there are an infinite amount of solutions
