1.) Solve the system by substitution x+y=12 y=12 Since Y = 12, we can substitute for y in the first equation as follows: X + 12 = 12 (Subtract 12 from each side) X = 0 X = 0, and y = 12 (0,12) 2.) Solve the system by substitution 3x-y =-7 (Equation 1) x+y=-9 (Equation 2) From Equation 2: x + y = -9 (Subtract y from each side)
