to solve with substitution is simple. Set the second problem equal to y. then insert this value in for y in the first equation. 6x+9y=(-12) y=27+5x 6x+9(27+5x)=(-12) Take is from here.

to solve for y in terms of y just set the equation equal to y. Then divide everything by the coefficiant of y. #1) 2x+7=y (already correct) #2) x-(2/3)y=3 x-3=(2/3)y (move y by itself) (x-3)/(2/3)=y (divide by 2/3) -->(3x-9)/2=y (simplify)

-8= (y/4) so multiply both sides by 4. On the right side the 4's will cancel and on the left it will be -32. -8 = (y/4) -8*4 = (y/4)*4 -32 = y Hint: Substitue your answer back into the original equation to check your work. So in this case check, does (-32/4) equal -8? Yes!
