User: Solve the following system of equations, using the elimination method: 2x + 3y = -1 5x - 3y = 29

Weegy: (2x + 3y = -1) + (5x - 3y = 29) - -> 7x = 28 - -> x = 4. 2(4) + 3y = -1 - -> 8 + 3y = -1 - -> y = -3. Check: 2x + 3y = 2(4) + 3(-3) = 8 - 9 = -1 ; 5x - 3y = 5(4) - 3(-3) = 20 + 9 = 29.

2x + 3y = -1
5x - 3y = 29
adding up equations the result is:
7x = 28
x = 4,
2(4) + 3y = -1
8 + 3y = -1
3y = -1 - 8 = -9
y = -3
The solution for the system 2x + 3y = -1 5x - 3y = 29 is (4, -3)
