Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Astrophysics 1. 6 y − x = −30 5y − x = 10 2. 5y + x = −30 5y + x = 10 3. 6y − 6x = −30 5y − 5x = 10 4. 5y + 5x = −30 5y + 5x = 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's already a system of equation, but I see you just want to simplify it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you have \[y=\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }x5\] so setting it up as they've showed you, so first move 1/6x to the left side how do you do that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for your first one you have \[y\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }x=5\]
