Weegy: 2x+7y=4 Since 2x does not contain the variable to solve for, [ move it to the right-hand side of the equation by subtracting 2x from both sides. 7y=-2x+4 Divide each term in the equation by 7. (7y)/(7)=-(2x)/(7)+(4)/(7) Cancel the common factor of 7 in (7y)/(7). ( 7 y)/( 7 )=-(2x)/(7)+(4)/(7) Remove the common factors that were cancelled out. y=-(2x)/(7)+(4)/(7) Combine the numerators of all expressions that have common denominators. y=(-2x+4)/(7) Factor out the GCF of -2 from the expression -2x. y=(-2(x)+4)/(7) Factor out the GCF of -2 from the expression 4. y=(-2(x)-2(-2))/(7) Factor out the GCF of -2 from -2x+4. y=(-2(x-2))/(7) Move the -1 to the front of the fraction. y=-(2(x-2))/(7) ]

2x+7y=48,
x=44-6y
substitute x in the first equation the result is:
2(44-6y)+7y=48
88-12y+7y=48
-5y=48-88=-40
y=-40/-5=8
x=44-6(8)=44-48=-4
The solution set for the system 2x+7y=48, x=44-6y is (-4, 8)
