Solve using the elimination method.Show work.If system has no solution state this or infinite solution
8x+10y=-34
16x-5y=-43

• Intermediate Algebra -

Note that, because of the first equation, 16x + 20y = -68.

Substitute -68 -20y for 16x in the second equation.

-68 -20y -5y = -43
-25y = 25
y = -1

8x -10 = -34
8x = -24
x = -3
