I need help multiplying the fractions out.

The question is...

x/3 + y/2 = -4

x - 3y = 6

( x/3 is a fraction )

To rid an equation of fractions, simply multiply everyting (both sides, too) by the denominator. In this case you have two numbers in the denominator so multiply by both; i.e., by 6

x/3 + y/2 = -4 becomes

2x + 3y = -24

Thank you!
