Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok i'm eleminating y so 2x + 3y = 8 x + 2y = 12 this the equation now multiply equation (2) with 2 you will get 2x + 3y = 8 2x + 4y = 24 now subtract eq (1) from eq(2) you will get y=16 now put this value of y=16 in any equation to find the value of x
