4x2y=9
20x10y=27
pls help with problem. Once I get 24x 2y 36 I'm confused after that.

Somebody expects you to solve a 2 by 2 system using matrices with echelon reduced form ??
That's like going to the corner store to buy milk in an 18 wheeler tractortrailer.
Furthermore the system has no solutions, since if you multiply the first by 5, you get
20x  10y = 45
now subtract the two to get
0 = 18
CONTRADICTION, so no solution.
