6x-4y=54
-9x+2y=-69

Which system would work best to solve?

Please show work and solve. (all steps)

Thank You

I honestly don't know how to do this.

  • Math - ,

    I would use elimination, where we attempt to get the coefficients of either x or y to be the same or to be opposite

    1st equation --> 6x - 4y = 54
    2nd times 2 --> -18x + 4y = -138
    add them:
    -12x = -84
    divide by -12
    x = 7

    sub back into the first
    6(7) - 4y = 54
    -4y = 12
    y = -3

    x = 7, y = -3

    sub those values into both equations to verify that my answer is correct (it works !)

    Thank you very much....

  • equation - ,

    x + 4y = 54
