x=-2y+1
x+3y=-2
Please help me solve each system of equations and show your work thanks.

  • Math -

    (-2y+1) + 3 y = -2

    y + 1 = -2

    y = -3

    x = -2(-3) + 1

    x = 7

  • Math -

    perfectly set up for using substitution
    sub the 1st into the 2nd

    x + 3y = -2
    (-2y+1) + 3y = -2
    -2y + 1 + 3y + -2
    y = -3
    back into the 1st: x = -2(-3)+1 = 7

    x = 7 , y = -3

  • Math -

    2y/3+27+3y/4=-24
