-7x+8y=-5

**San**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 3:46pmmultiply the top by positive 8 and multiply the bottom by negative 6. then cancel out the y's and solve for x. plug x back into anyone and solve for y.

**Steve**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 3:56pmhmm. sounds like elimination to me.

For substitution, pick either equation and solve for x (or y):

-2x+6y=6

6y = 2x+6

y = x/3 + 1

Now substitute that into the other equation:

-7x+8y = -5

-7x + 8(x/3 + 1) = -5

-7x + 8x/3 + 8 = -5

-13x/3 = -13

x = 3

so, y = x/3+1 = 2

be sure to plug (3,2) into the original equations to make sure you (or I!) didn't make a mistake.
