Can't say

 

y = 3x - 12     ......  but x, y can take on infinite values because this is a line

 

So...without any other info

 

8x2y   could take on infinite values, as well

        (23)x2y

   which can be rewritten

   

       23x2y

 

    Since the numerator and denominator have a common base, this expression can be rewritten as 2(3x−y). In the question, it states that 3x−y=12, so one can substitute 12 for the exponent, 3x−y, which means that

8x2y=212

 

I think is this right?
