Thank you - I am getting substitution but this is really hard. x+6y=16 -x+6y=8 I did come up with 12y=8 and then I get stuck. --------------------- If you add those, you get 12y = 24, not 8. Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x+6y=16 -x+6y=8 I did come up with 12y=8 and then I get stuck. --------------------------------------------------- Good so far: 12y = 8 y = 2/3 --- Substitute into x+6y = 16 x + 6(2/3) = 16 x + 4 = 16 x = 12 -------------------------- Cheers, Stan H.
