(1) Solve the system by subsitution

2x + y = -11

3 - 4y = 11

(2) Solve the system by elimination

2x + 6 = -12

5x - 5y = 10

(3) What is the solution of the following system?

-3x - 2y = -12

9x + 6y = -9

(4) What is the solution of the following system?

x - y = 11

-x + y = -1

**Steve**, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 2:48pmassuming that without typos, you meant

2x + y = -11

3x - 4y = 11

from the first, y = -2x-11

substitute that into the second to get

3x - 4(-2x-11) = 11

3x + 8x + 44 = 11

11x = -33

x = -3

so, y=-2(-3)-11 = -5

On the others, if all else fails, try checking each of the proposed solutions. If you get stuck, show us where, and we can help you along.
