### Transcript

just like furniture to retail outlet store Sometimes we need

to rearrange a system of equations This time getting wide

by itself in both equations will really liven up the

place So Y equals two x minus six and y

equals X squared minus five Acts minus 66 is what

will d'oh So now we set the wise equal to

each other and then make one side equal to zero

so seldom equal We got this thing over here at

six I mean who knew him And then we're going

to do some simplifying here by subtracting too except from

this side It gets negative seven next year and we'll

add six there So that gets a sixty right there

Yeah Then we factor it We've got what in what

twelve times five is sixty and yes Oh that works

so x minus twelve times X plus five Those have

to be said to zero So what makes this thing

zeros Well we got a twelve in a negative five

there as potential excess The solutions to this system of

equations are X equals twelve and X equals negative five

The second one of which is our answer Choice of 00:01:15.98 --> [endTime] choice Yeah All right We're done Yeah
