**Minerva**, Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 3:21amYour teacher should have given you what X= alternativly what Y= then you should work out what either X or Y stands for. Take your first equation for example..

2x-y=4

Q. IF X EQUALS 2 WHAT IS Y?

Substitute x with four

2(2)-y=4

Now times 2 by the number in the brackets

2x2=4

so the equation now reads

4-y=4

in this case

Y=zero

remember this is just an example! Insert the value of Y or X into your equations and work it out!
