User: 7x-4y=60 2x-5y=21 using elimination

Weegy: solve for y or x in one equation then, insert that into the other equation in place of the variable you solved for.

7x-4y=60 multiple 2 on both sides:
14x - 8y = 120 (equation 1)
2x-5y=21 multiple 7 on both sides:
14x - 35y = 147 (equation 2)
eqution 1 - equation 2 the result is:
27y = -27
y = -27/27 = -1;
7x-4(-1)=60,
7x + 4 = 60
7x = 60 - 4 = 56
x = 56/7 = 8;
The solution for the system 7x-4y=60 2x-5y=21 is (8, -1)
