I SERIOUSLY need help!

Solve the linear system by using substitution.

x=6-4y

2x-3y=1

Explanation too, please!

Please and thanks!

very very easy

sub x = 6-4y into

2x - 3y = 1

2(6-4y) - 3y = 1

12 - 8y - 3y = 1

-11y = -11

y = 1

then x = 6 - 4(1) = 2

Thank you, but:

How did you go from 12-8y-3y to -11y?

12 - 8y - 3y = 1

12 - 11y = 1 , that should be clear

12 **-12** - 11y = 1 **-12**

-11y = -11

divide by -11

y = 1
