6-37.

Solve each system of equations using the method of your choice.

1. $y+x=−2$
$5x−3y=22$

• 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 $y$.

• $x = 2$
$y = −4$

1. $x=3$
$7x−2y=24$

• The first equation is already $x = 3$.
Use it to solve for $y$.

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