5-84.

Solve the system of equations below. Write your solution as a point in (x, y) form. Check your solution. Homework Help ✎

y = −3x − 2
2x + 5y = 16

Substitute the first equation into the second to solve for one variable.

2x + 5(−3x − 2) = 16

Once you have one of the variables, solve for the other.

Did you check your answers in both equations? Did you write the answer in (x,y) form?
