    Where could you put the 52? Guess if you are not 100% sure.

    x = 2y - 6 52 = 2y-6

    Taking 52 = 2y - 6 We add 6 on both sides 52+6 = 26 + 6 -6 The two 6 on the right hand side cancel out to become 0 58 = 2y Divide both sides by 2 58/2 = 2y/2 29 = y

    y = 29 x = 2y-6 x = 2(29) - 6 x = 58 - 6 x = 52
