Jerry solved the system of equations.
7x + 2y =7
As the first step, he decided to solve for y in the second equation because it had the smallest number as a coefficient. Max told him that there was a more efficient way. What reason can Max give for his statement?
The variable x in the second equation has a coefficient of 7 so it will be easy to divide 7 by 7.
The variable y in the second equation has a coefficient of 2 so it will be easy to divide the entire equation by 2.
The variable x in the second equation has the largest coefficient. When dividing by 7, the solution will be a smaller number.
