# How do you solve the following system of equations?: #x+y= -2 , 4x+3y=8 #?

##### 2 Answers

the answer:

#### Explanation:

In the two equations, get

#y= -x-2# and

#y= -4/3 x +8/3# .

Then you set the two equations equal to each other:

#-x-2= -4/3 x +8/3# .

Then you solve for

Solve by substitution and elimination:

We can eliminate

Now add both of the equations:

So,if

Now substitute the value of

So,

You can check the answer and it will be correct! :)
