    I "thought" I was good in Math. In High School I passed with A's. Forward to now (5 years later), I cant remember what I learned in 8th grade!! This is what College is giving me for Math as a Homeland Security major.

    Solve by the substitution method.

    x + 3y = 0
    x - 3y = 36

    Second problem

    7x + 4y = -3
    9x + 6y = 3

    I know you have to isolate (solve) for x and y, just my answers don't seem to be correct.

    Thanks for the help guys. I answered them this morning. Would be hard to believe but Math was one of my favorite subjects and I passed Algebra I and II with A's. cveklund said it best. When you don't use what you learn for so long, you forget. I just could not believe how much I forgot!
