Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can think of two possible ways to answer this question. One way would be to try and solve the equations yourself. Alternatively, we could just try each of the multiple choice answers and see which one works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Id start with adding x to both sides y − x +x= 13+x y=13+x The subtitute the y value in place of 3y 4x + 3(13+x) = 51 <solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Not at all :) \[\huge~\rm~4x + 3(13+x) = 51 \] Distribute the 3 \[\huge~\rm~ 3(13+x) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Good 39+3x \[\huge~\rm~4x 39+3x = 51 \] Combine like terms
