Find the solution for x,y.

In the problem...

5x-3y=-11
x-2y=2

Multiply the second equaton by five.
5x-3y=-11
5x-10y=10

subtract the second equation from the first.

7y=-21

solve for y, then put y into either of the beginning equations to solve for x.

    The problem to solve is: (x+20)(x-12)(x+4)>0 but I can't figure out how to do this right so I left off the >0 and tried to solve the equation. x+20 evaluates to x+20 x-12 evaluates to x-12 Multiplying x+20 by x-12 is a classic
