6a + 5b = 10 , 6a - b = -110

a=________ b=_________

6a + 5b = 10
6a - b = -110
===================
Subtact equation 2 from equation which will eliminate a. Solve the resulting equation for b, then substitute into either original equation and solve for a. Post your work if you get stuck. I hope this helps get you started.
