Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\bf \begin{array}{llll} 4y+2x=18\\ 3x+6y=26 \end{array}\implies \begin{array}{llll} 2x+4y=18\\ 3x+6y=26 \end{array}\impliedby \textit{arranging the variables} \\ \quad \\ \begin{array}{llll} 2x+4y=18&{\color{brown}{ \times 3}}\\ 3x+6y=26&{\color{brown}{ \times 2}} \end{array}\) if you multiply those expressions, by THAT MUCH, what do they become?
