Multiply eq. 2 by and add the equations together, Then use either equation to solve for . Answer by kvlsravya(8)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let us suppose the given system of equations as 7x + 6y = -48 ---- (1) x - 3y = -3 ---- (2) Let us employ the elimination method to eliminate x. Multiplying (2) by 7, we get 7x - 21y = -21 ---- (3) Subtracting (1) from (3), we get y = -1 Plugging in the value of 'y' in any of the equations (1), (2), we get x = -6 Hence, the solution to the given system of linear equations is x = -6 and y = -1.
