Can you help me please? I would really appreciate it! Thank you! Answer by edjones(7569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2u+v=9 . u/2 -1/2=-v u-1=-2v multiply each side by 2. u+2v=1 -2u-4v=-2 multiply each side by -2. . 2u+v=9 -2u-4v=-2 -----------add -3v=7 . v=-7/3 u=17/3 .
