ur supposed to add straight down, but then i think u have to multiply one equation by the other to get y to cancel out, and then i get up to that step, and then just get really confused, i really do appreciate any help...THANX

x+4=-2
x-y=2

actually i did write it wrong, im sorry, but i already got the answer for it, thankyou for your time anyway..
