Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22x + 3y = 12 subtracting 2x both sides : 2x + 3y = 12 2x 2x you should get : 3y = 12  2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but "y" still has that 3 attached to it how to get rid of that 3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Often for these algebraic problems to move something to the other side we use the opposite operation of what already exists, so since there's a 3 attached to the y, which means it's being multiplied. What can we do to get rid of the 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 10 I think you were trying to subtract 2x from 12, but you can't do that since there is a variable (x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you have `12  2x`, you leave it like that you can't say that equals `10` because they are not "like terms" nevertheless, it was really a very good attempt from your side! keep it up!
