To find out if you are right or not, put your answer (x =-2, y=-1) back in each equation

equation 1

3(-2) + 2(-1) = ??? -8

-6 - 2 = -8 sure enough

equation 2

2(-2) - 3(-1) = ??? -1

-4 + 3 = -1 sure enough so you did it right

Now the how :

equation 1

when x = 0, y = -8/2 so y intercept at (0,-4)

when y = 0, x = -8/3 so x intercept at (-8/3,0)

draw that line

equation 2

when x = 0, y = 1/3 so (0,1/3)

when y = 0, x = -1/2 so (-1/2, 0)

graph

see if they hit each other at (-2,-1)
