2y + x = 6 (equation 1)
x - y = -6 (equation 2)
Equation 1 - equation 2 we get: 3y = 12, so y = 4
2(4) + x = 6
Solve the equation: x = -2
The solution for the system of equations 2y + x = 6, x - y = -6 is (-2, 4)

Let x be the number of dimes he has and y be the number of quarters,
we were given:
x + y = 23
10x + 25y = 335
Solve the equation we get x = 16
Carlos has 16 dimes.

Solve each system of equations. If possible, write your answer as an ordered pair. y = -3x + 2 y = 4x - 5
Weegy: 4x + 12 = -3x - 6 + 4x, 4x + 12 = x - 6, 12 + 6 = x - 4x, 18 = -3x or -3x = 18, x = -6 (More)

y = -3x + 2
y = 4x - 5
replace y in the first equation we get:
4x - 5 = -3x + 2
4x + 3x = 2 + 5
7x = 7
x = 1
y = 4(1) - 5 = -1
The solution for the system of equations y = -3x + 2 y = 4x - 5 is (1, -1)

y = 5x - 3
y = 2x + 6
replace y in the first equation we get:
2x + 6 = 5x - 3
2x - 5x = -3 - 6
-3x = -9
x = 3
y = 5(3) - 3 = 15 - 3 = 12
The solution for the system of equations y = 5x - 3 y = 2x + 6 is (3, 12)

x + y = 8
x + 3y = 14
the first equation - the second equation: 2y = 6
solve the equation: y = 3
x + 3 = 8, x = 5
The solution for the system of equations x + y = 8, x + 3y = 14 is (5, 3)

y = -2x + 6
y = 3x - 9
Replace y in the first equation:
3x - 9 = -2x + 6
5x = 15,
x = 3
y = -2(3) + 6 = 0
The solution for the system of equations y = -2x + 6 y = 3x - 9 is (3, 0)
