9p+6q=78 (2)

You want to eliminate either the p's or q's to solve for one. Eliminating the q's is easier because you only have to change one equation. Multiplying (1) by -2...

-8p-6q=-72 (3)

9p+6q=78 (2)

Add the equations together.

p=6

Now substitute p=6 in either equation 1 or 2 to figure out what q equals.
