Thank you

• Math Elimination method -

This is an easy one. Just add them.

Make an effort

• Math Elimination method -

12y=34?

• Math Elimination method -

47 + 13 does not equal 34

• Math Elimination method -

12y=60

I thought you would have to subtract 47-13= 34

Do i have to divide 60 by 12?
And where do i find where y?

• Math Elimination method -

y = 60/12

• Math Elimination method -

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

• Math Elimination method -

what is elimination method
