Algebra

posted by .

I need some help solving this system of equations:

5x - y = 18
–4x – 2y = –6

  • Algebra -

    I would use substitution, from the 1st:
    y = 5x-18
    sub into the 2nd:

    -4x - 2(5x-18) = -6
    -4x - 10x + 36 = -6
    -14x = -42
    x = 3
    y = 5(3)-18 = -3

    x=3 , y = -3
