**bobpursley**, Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 7:16pmI would multiply the top equation by 5, and the bottom equation by 2

20x-10y=160

-6x-10y=-22

then subtract the bottom equation (remember to change the signs)

26x=182 solve for x.

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 7:25pmGo back to either of the original equations, put in 7 for x, and solve for y.

**mike**, Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 7:33pmso for example

4(7)-2y=32 or -3(7)-5y=-11

and then it equals 28-2y=32 or

-21-5y=-11

then what from their this is driving me insane!

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 7:41pmadd 21 to each side.

divide each side by -5

I think the answer is y=2,but you better check.

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 7:42pmYep, 2 is almost right, but not quite. Check to see why.
