**mk-tintin**, Monday, January 14, 2008 at 5:02pmL1 : 4x+3y=-8

L2 : 3x-3y=15

Do L1+L2--> 7x=7 so x=1

in L1 4*(1)+3y=-8

3y=-12

y=-4

the couple of solution is(1,-4)

**DrBob222**, Monday, January 14, 2008 at 5:13pmNo. Add equation 1 (what mk-tintin labels L1) to equation 2, (L2) to obtain

7x +0y = -8+15

7x=7

x=1

**mk-tintin**, Monday, January 14, 2008 at 5:14pmdoing L1+L2-->4x+3x+3y-3y=-8+15
