6-26.
  1. Solve the systems of equations below using any method, if possible. Show all work and check your solution. If there is no solution, explain why not. Homework Help ✎

    1. y = 2x + 8

      3x + 2y = −12

    2. 2x − 5y = 4

      5y − 2x = 10

Use the substitution method. Remember to check your answer.

x = −4, y = 0

Use the Elimination Method.

2x − 5y = 4
−2x + 5y = 10
0 + 0 = 14

0 ≠ 14

No solution, the lines are parallel.
