x + y = 3

2.
-x + y = 1
x + y = 11

3.
x + 4y = 11
x - 6y = 11

4.

I NEED HELP ASAP!!!!

• Algebra :\ -

Either add or subtract one equation from the other to eliminate x.

For example. ADD the two equations in Problem 1. This results in 2x = 4, which requires that x = 2. Use either equation to get y.

You can certainly do the others yourself.
