1/4x1/6y=2
1/6x+1/5y=4
solve for x and y its suppose to be x equals 12 and y equals 30
need steps thanks

drwls,
Multiply the first equation by 4 and the second by 6, and then add the two. This will eliminate the x and let you solve for y.
x  (4/6) y = 8
x + (6/5)y = 24
(20/30 + 36/30)y = 16
(16/30)y = 16
y = 30
