Solve the linear equation. Solve for x and y
y=3/4x + 1/4
y=3/4x  3/4

add the two equations to get y alone:
y = 3/4x + 1/4
y = 3/4x  3/4

2y = 2/4
y = 1/4
then substitute this value of y to either of the equations and solve for x. in this case let's substitute this to the first give equation:
y = 3/4x + 1/4
1/4 = 3/4x + 1/4
1/4  1/4 = 3/4x
(2/4 = 3/4x)*4
2 = 3x
x = 2/3
hope this helps~ :)
