##### 2 Answers

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Step 1) Solve the second equation for

Step 2) Substitute

Step 3) Substitute

The solution is:

#### Explanation:

Let's try elimination! If we multiply the first equation by *eliminate* them from the set:

...........................................

*divide by #7# on both sides*

Now let's solve for

*substitute #0# for #x#*

*divide by #-4# on both sides*

To check our work, let's substitute

We were right!!!

Just to triple check, let's graph the equations and see where they intercept:

They cross at
