2x+7y=27 rearranging the equation:
2x = 27-7y (equation 1)
2x-7y=-79 (equation 2)
institute 2x in equation 2 using equation 1 the result is:
(27-7y)-7y=-79
27-14y=-79
-14y=-79-27 = -106
y = -106/-14 = 53/7
2x = 27-7(53/7) = 27-53 = -26
x = -26/2 = -13
The solution for the system 2x+7y=27 and 2x-7y=-79 is (-13, 53/7)
