Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one of the 4 methods for solving simultanous equation is by elimination. the object is the make the coefficients of one of the variable equal and opposite so they will cancel out when the equations are added. you will have one equation with one variable. solve for this variable then substitute this value in the expressions to get the value of the other variable. it is a good practice to check the solution in either of the originals.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for this question just add the equations since the y's are already equal and opposite then solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just add the 2 equations. The 3y and 3y will be eliminated and you'll have an equation in x only which is easy to solve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have 6x=12...on the left side you have multiplication, so just think the opposite...what's the opposite of multiplication? how can that 6x be turned into just x?
