6-37.

Solve each system of equations using the method of your choice. Homework Help ✎

*y*+*x*= −2

5*x*− 3*y*= 22*x*= 3

7*x*− 2*y*= 24

Try rearranging the first equation and then using the Elimination method.

Rearrange the first equation so that *x* is first. Multiply the top equation by 3 to eliminate *y*. Add the two equations to solve for *x*.

Substitute the *x*-value into an equation to find *y*.

*x* = 2*y* = −4

The first equation is already *x* = 3.

Use it to solve for *y*.

Substitute *x* = 3 into the second equation and solve for *y*.
