 Question 231554: What is the solution to the following system of equations? 8x - 10y = -24 -8x + 6y = 40 Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15660)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!8x - 10y = -24 -8x + 6y = 40 --------------------adding eliminates x, find y 0 - 4y = 16 y = y = -4 : Find x using the 1st equation 8x - (-40) = -24 8x + 40 = -24 8x = -24 - 40 8x = -64 x = x = -8 ; : Check in the 2nd equation -8x + 6y = 40 -8(-8) + 6(-4) = 64 - 24 = 40
