Solve the system of equations using the substitution method. I can't understand the 5/6x!!

y = 2 + 5/6 * x 4x - 3y = 3

$$\mathrm{Subsititute\:}y=2+\frac{5}{6}\cdot \:x$$

$$\begin{bmatrix}4x-3\left(2+\frac{5}{6}x\right)=3\end{bmatrix}$$

$$\mathrm{Isolate}\:x\:\mathrm{for}\:4x-3\left(2+\frac{5}{6}x\right)=3:\quad x=6$$

$$\mathrm{For\:}y=2+\frac{5}{6}\cdot \:x$$

$$\mathrm{Subsititute\:}x=6$$

$$2+\frac{5}{6}\cdot \:6=7$$

$$y=7, \text{Solution is x=6, y=7}$$

y = 2 + 20/6 x - 3y    add 3 y to both sides of the equation

4y = 2 + (20/6) x        your original Q says y = 3    substitute that in

12 = 2 + 20/6 x       subtract 2 from both sides

10 = 20/6   x            multiply both sides by 6/20

60/20 = x = 3

Now I see your question has TWO Equations....please put some spaces in there !

y = 2 + 5/6 * x

4x - 3y = 3          Is much more clear.....see whoisjoe answer below....

Hmm. We seem to be disagreeing. I think you forgot that y = 2 + 5/6x is a different term than 4x-3y=3, lol. Guest probably should have put something to tell us that they are 2 different terms, unless I am the mistaken one. Oh I see you didn't see that it was a system of equations so you just solved for x!

As for the 5/6x confusion you are having, just put the 5/6x in the term you are substituting in for "y", like I did when I said $$\mathrm{Subsititute\:}y=2+\frac{5}{6}\cdot \:x$$
