Solve using the elimination method. Show your work. If the system has no solution or an infinite number of solutions, state this.

11x + 8y = 103

22x – 7y = 68

11x+8y=103 (1)

22x-7y=68 (2)

Multiply (1) by -2 to cancel the x's

-22-16y=-206 (3)

22x-7y=68 (2)

Add them together.

-23y=-138

Divide by -23

y=6

Now substitute y=6 into either equation (1) or (2) to solve for x.

Post your work and answer if you'd like it checked.

Hi Jen,

Okay here is what I got to solve for x

11x *6 + 8y = 72

66 + 8y

8y = 9

x = 9

Okay did I do this right?
