x - 2y = 3 , 5x + 3y = 2 The lines whose equations are shown intersect at (1 , -1) point.
x - 2y = 3 , x = 3 + 2y
put x = 3 + 2y in equation 2
5(3 + 2y) + 3y = 2
15 + 10y + 3y = 2
13y = -13
y = -1
x = 3 + 2*(-1)
x = 1

2x+ y - 10 = 0 , x - y - 4 = 0, 2/3 is the value of y.
equation 1 add equation 2
2x + y - 10 + x - y - 4 = 0
3x = 14
x = 14/3
14/3 - y - 4 = 0
y = 14/3 - 4
y = 14/3 - 12/3
y = 2/3
