A farmer is tracking two wild honey bees in his field. He maps the first bee's path back to the hive on the line y=9/7x. the second bee's bee path follows the line y=3x+12. Their paths cross at the hive. At what coordinate will the farmer find the hive?
I got (6/7, 6)

that isn't the answer, use substitution replacing y to the left of the equation 9/7x=3x+12 solve this for x. then multiply the x you find by 9/7 to get the y

At x=0,y=12.at y=0,x=4 therefore x=4,y=12.

At codinate 3x+12

pq(p10)+(p10)
