5-84.

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

*y* = −3*x* − 2

2*x* + 5*y* = 16

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

2*x* + 5(−3*x* − 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?
