**Henry**, Friday, October 1, 2010 at 7:23pmx - y = 12,

2x/5 = y/3 + 6,

Multiply both sides by 15, the common denominator:

6x = 5y + 90,

6x - 5y = 90,

Multiply both sides of 1st Eq by -6 and add the 2 Eqs:

x - y = 12

6x - 5y = 90

-6x + 6y = -72

6x - 5y = 90

y = 18,

Substitute 18 for y in the 1st Eq:

x - 18 = 12,

x = 30.

Solution set: x = 30, and y = 18.
