**Answer:**

The answer is n= -4/10

**Step-by-step explanation:**

What is the original measurement in?

**Step-by-step explanation:**

larger number = y

smaller number=x

y>2x+1

y<3x+6

Probably the first one, if I did this right.

To do this problem, you need to know how to read math, <em>literally</em>. The problem says that y is the larger number, so assume the smaller is x. So, y exceeds 2x by 1 (so, y>2x+1). then, it says 3x exceeds y by 6; therefore, 3x+6>y. I may have interpreted it wrong, though, so tell me if I made a mistake :))

**Answer:**

<u>**first one**</u>

Lets set up a ratio!

17.00USD per 51 pounds and 1 pound per x dollars.

next step. cross multiply for the answer :)

**Answer:find the solution to the system of equations below.start by adding the equation **

**{-2x+2y=-8**

**{2x+y=5**

**Step-by-step explanation:The given system of equation are:**

**1---- y= x -4**

**2----- y=4 x+2**

**Equation (1) - Equation (2)**

**→0= x -4 - (4 x+2)**

**→0= -3 x -6-----[Adding and subtracting like terms]**

**Adding 3 x on both sides**

**→3 x= -6**

**Dividing by 3 on both sides**

**→x = -2**

**→Substituting the value of x in equation 1, we get**

**y= -2 -4**

**y =-6**

**→Solution set =(x,y)=(-2, -6)**

**Don't used the graph to find the solution.**
