  1. Assuming you know how to calculate a determinant, the answer is
    x = |24 -6| / |3 -6| = -18/-9 = 2
    ....|-23 5|/ |-4 5|
    You can get y by substitution of x=2 in either equation, or from a separate ratio of determinants.
    If you are not familiar with the notation, nor why I chose those numbers, nor how to calculate the determinants, then you need to review the subject. Your textbook should contain that information.

  2. Those are supposed to be square 2 x 2 matrices in numerator and denominator of my previous answer. It is hard to get the type spacing right to align the top and bottom halves. The | | symbols denote the determinant of the matrix.
