6x-y=50

6x+7y=-14

What is the solution of the system?

(type an ordered pair. Type N if there is no solution. Type R if the solution is all real numbers)

**drwls**, Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 5:27amSubtract the second equation from the first and get

-8y = 64

y = -8

Now use the first equation and the y answer

6x +8 = 50

6x = 42

x = 7

(7, -8)
