5x+5y=11
7x3y=19
I am told that my answer is
wrong, can you help me
(1.24, 3.44)

Whoever told you that you were wrong, copy this and show them
if x=1.24, y=3.44
equation#1
LS = 5(1.24) + 5(3.44)
= 6.2  17.2
= 11
= RS
equation #2
LS = 7(1.24)  3(3.44)
= 8.68 + 10.32
= 19
= RS
Trust yourself !! 
Multiply both sides of the the last equation by 5/3, to give
11.667 x  5y = 31.667
Add that to the first equation and you get
16.667x = 20.667
x = 1.24
y = (7x19)/3 = 3.44
If that was your answer, rounded off to three significant figures, then you are correct.
