    Elimination involves multiplying one or more equations to either eliminate the x's or y's.
    Multiplying the top equation by 2 and the bottom equation by 5 will eliminate the y's.
    10x+10y=-14
    35x-10y=85
    Now add the equations together.
    45x=71
    Divide both sides by 45 to solve by x.
    x=?
    Now plug that number into any of the equations to figure out what y is. Post your answer if you'd like it checked.
