Use the elimination method to solve the system of equations.

5u+2v=-18
3u+v=-5

I have tried to solve this problem several times and have not gotten the correct answer please help. Thank you.

  1. 5u+2v=-18
    3u+v=-5

    Multiply second equation by two and subtract from the first equation.

    6u+2v = -10

    -u = -8

    Multi[ply by -1.

    Insert u value into the first equation to find v, then check by putting both values into the second equation.
