So I've been working on solving this system by addition/subtraction and I just can't get the right answer. Her is the system of equations I was given to solve by add/sub: 3x – y = –12 x + 2y = –18

double the first: 6x - 2y = -24 x + 2y = -18 add them: 7x = -42 x = -6 back into the second: -6 + 2y = -18 2y = -12 y = -6 x = -6 , y = -6

solve the system by substitution 6x+2y=-18 -x+5y=19
