solve the system of equations 4x  3y= 8 2x+ 5y= 9

multiply the second equation by 2. Then add the equations.

solve the system of equations 4x  3y= 8 2x+ 5y= 9 thanks for the hint but i think the answer is (1/2,2) or(2,1) if wrong please reply bobpursley and show work so ican understand

2x=5y=9 the equation is 2x+5y=9
i believe the answer is (1/2,2).
