    try to get either the x or the y coefficients to be alike
    in this case I will get the y's to have a 15 in front

    so multiply the first by 5 and the second by 3 to get

    25r - 15s = 85
    9r + 15s = 51

    add them
    34r = 136
    r = 136/34 = 4

    back in second, (or first)
    3(4) + 5s = 17

    12 + 5s = 17
    5s = 5
    s = 1
