# Math Help - the equations may seem more complicated?

1. ## the equations may seem more complicated?

if the equations had three-digit coefficients and you needed to eliminate one of the variables? Would it be easier then to use the substitution method or stay with the elimination method, even though the equations may seem more complicated?

Can you give an example of what you're talking about?
