    sim. equations

    Ok so i've got the following, how can i solve this?

     y = 2x + 2
     y = \frac{^-1}{3}x + \frac{14}{3}

    Thank you

    Talking

    If you know how to solve systems of equations, just apply the same methods.

    If you don't, then first learn how. Then try the "substitution" method, since each of the two equations is already solved for "y=".

    That's correct, since that equation has only x terms you can solve this

    Also does \frac {^-1}{3}x = -\frac{1}{3}x = -\frac{x}{3}. If it does then convention is to write it in either of the two latter forms
