8x – 3y = 1 –2x + 3y = 11 Adding up the above equations the result is: 6x = 12 x = 2; 8(2) - 3y = 1 -3y = 1 - 16 = -15 y = 5 The solution for the system 8x – 3y = 1 –2x + 3y = 11 is (2, 5)

8x – 3y = 1 –2x + 3y = 11 Adding up the two equations the result is: 6x = 12 x = 2; 8(2) - 3y = 1 -3y = 1 - 16 = -15 y = 5, The solution for the system of equations 8x – 3y = 1 –2x + 3y = 11 is: (2, 5)
