Solve the system of linear equations by elimination. Thank You for your help.
8x+10y=3
3x5y=2

multipy the second equation by 2, then add the equations. I get
14x=7 solve for x (check that) 
Ok i got that too... it comes to a fraction but then when you check it in the equations you don't get the same answer.
