    Just for a more reasonable explanation, if you solve both in terms of y, you get:

    y=3-3x
    y=3+x

    so 3-3x = 3+x, which balances to -3x = x (x can only be 0)

    y = 3 - 3(0) = 3
    y = 3 + (0) = 3

    y = 3 + (0) = 3
    where you gettin y=3+x, second equation was x-5y=-15 which is y=(x+15)/5, which is y=x/5 + 3, just being nit picky, you get same answer.

    HAHA... Madjek sounds like my HS Algebra II teacher. She would get so mad when I would look problems over and write the answers out without actually writing the process down on paper.

    there are 48 unseen cards aside from the A3 and 2 kings.

    On merge, there are 48 aces in the deck - so 47 left.
