How Do I Solve 2x - 3y = 8 4x+3y=-2?
so 6x=6,so x=1,y=-2.
2x - 3y = 8 (1)
4x+3y=-2 (2),(1)+(2):2x - 3y +4x+3y=-2+8,6x=6,x=1,-3y=8-2,y=-2.
Since 2x does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the equation by subtracting 2x from both sides.
Divide each term in the equation by -3.
Simplify the left-hand side of the equation by canceling the common factors.
Simplify the right-hand side of the equation by simplifying each term.
