Can someone please check my work?

Solve using substitution method

1. 3x+2y=12
x=52-6y
answer:-40.8 I am pretty sure that one is wrong.

Solve using elimination method

2. 2r-7s=-31
7r+2s=24

3.3x+4y=3
6x+8y=6

1. 3(52-6y) + 2 y = 12
156 - 18 y + 2 y = 12
-16 y = -144
y = 9
x = 52 - 6(9) = 52 - 54 = -2

2. Thank you Damon!
Can you help me with the formula to solve by elimination?

3. 3x+2y=12
x=52-6y multiply everything by 3 on this line

3x+2y=12
3 x = 156 - 18y
---------------- subtract
0 x + 2y = 12 -156 + 18 y
0 = - -144 + 16 y
y = 144/16 = 9 again

4. ### Substitution Method in Algebra!HELP PLZ!

Use the Substitution method to solve the system of equations. 3x + y = 5 4x - 7y = -10 multiply first equation by 4 multiply second equation by 3 thus both equations have same x or y value in this case it is the x value. 12x + 4y
