solve the system by the method of substitution


I got (0,2)

Try plugging in x=0 and y=2 into your first equiation and uopu will that your answer must be wrong.

Do it this way:

x - 4y =-21
12x+ 4y =8

13 x = -13
x = -1
y = 2 - 3x = ?

x=0 and y=2 does not satisfy the first equation.
(0)-4(2)=0-8=-8 but that isn't equal to -21.

    If you were to use the substitution method to solve the following system, choose the new system of equations that would result if x was isolated in the third equation. 2x - 3y + z = -4 2x - 2y + z = -1 x - 2y + 3z = -6 5x + 7y = 6
