  1. elimination is usually done with linear equations. Using substitution,

    x = 2y-3, so we have

    (2y-3)^2 + 9y^2 = 37
    4y^2 - 12y + 9 + 9y^2 = 37
    13y^2 - 12y - 28 = 0
    (y-2)(13y+14) = 0

    i don't understand how to do simultaneous solutions of linear functions. i don't understand what elimination is and how to substitute. for eg. 4c-3d=11 3c-4d=17 is that elimination? how is it done?
