# How do you solve the following linear system: 14x + 3y = 12 , 2x-2y= -8?

Dec 6, 2015

$x = 0$, $y = 4$

#### Explanation:

$2 x - 2 y = - 8$

$2 x = 2 y - 8$

$x = y - 4$

$14 x + 3 y = 12 \to 14 \left(y - 4\right) + 3 y = 12$

$14 y - 56 + 3 y = 123$

$17 y = 68$

$y = 4$

$x = \left(4\right) - 4$

$x = 0$
