 Question 596082: Solve by elimination method: 3x-2y=20 and 2x+3y=-4Answer by stanbon(57224)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Solve by elimination method: 3x-2y=20 and 2x+3y=-4 ----------- Multiply thru the 1st by 2. Multiply thru the 2nd by 3. ------------------------- 6x - 4y = 40 6x + 9y = -12 ----------- Subtract and solve for "y": 13y = -52 y = -4 ------ Solve for "x": ---------- 2x+3y = -4 2x -12 = -4 2x = 8 x = 4 ---- Solution (4,-4) ===================== Cheers, Stan H.
