# In the below system, solve for y in the first equation. x + 3y = 6, 2x − y = 10.

We will use the concept of linear equation in one variable to solve for y.

## Answer: y = 2 / 7

Let us see how we will use the concept of linear equation in one variable to solve for y.

**Explanation:**

We have been given two linear equations that are x + 3y = 6, 2x − y = 10.

Equation 1 : x + 3y = 6

Equation 2 : 2x − y = 10

On multiplying the equation 1 by 1 we get modified equation 1.

Modified equation 1 : 2x + 6y = 12

On subtracting equation 2 from modified equation 1 we get,

7y = 2

y = 2 / 7
