A pair of equations is shown below: y = 3x − 5 y = 6x − 8 Part A: Explain how you will solve the pair of equations by substitution or elimination. Show all the steps and write the solution. Part B: If the two equations are graphed, at what point will the lines representing the two equations intersect? Help explain how to do this..

    substitution put 3x- 5 for y in the second equation

    so it becomes \(3x-5=6x-8\)

    now you can solve for x 6x - 3x = 3x 8 + -5 = 3 3 = 3x 1= x

    3*1 = 3 - 5 y = -2
