Use elimination to solve the the system of equations given by 10x-4y=-20

and 10x-5y=35.

I can't figure this one out. Whenever I check my work, it is incorrect.

when I subtract the last equation from the first, I get

y = -55

sub that back into the first

10x -4(-55) = -20

10x + 220 = -20

10x = -240

x = -24

(those values verify in both equations)

-6x+5y=1 6x+4y=-10
