 Question 233224: Solve by the substitution method 2x+3y=8 -6x+y=36 What is the solution set I came up with ( -2,6) am I closeAnswer by Alan3354(34674)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Solve by the substitution method 2x+3y=8 -6x+y=36 What is the solution set I came up with ( -2,6) am I close ----------- Sub -2 for x and 6 for y, see if they're right. ************************************************* There's no "close" in these, it's right or wrong. ************************************************* 2x+3y=8 2*(-2) + 3*6 =? 8 8 = 8 That one's good. ----- -6x+y=36 -6*(-2) + 6 =? 36 12 + 6 <> 36 Not right. ---------- How did you get that?
