Use the elimination method to solve
x+8y= 47
x + 4y= 13
The solution is (___,___)
Thank you

This is an easy one. Just add them.
Make an effort 
12y=34?

47 + 13 does not equal 34

12y=60
I thought you would have to subtract 4713= 34
Do i have to divide 60 by 12?
And where do i find where y? 
y = 60/12

correct answer was (37/25, 72/25)
