Answer:

The solution for the system of equations is

#color(blue)(x=8,y=-6#

Explanation:

#2x+y=10#, multiplying by #4#
#8x+color(blue)(4y)=40#....equation #(1)#

#3x+color(blue)(4y)=0#.......equation #(2)#

Solving by elimination:

Subtracting equation #2# from #1#:

#8x+cancelcolor(blue)(4y)=40#

#-3x-cancelcolor(blue)(4y)=-0#

#5x=40#

#color(blue)(x=8#

Finding #y# by substituting #x# in equation #1#

#2x+y=10#

#y=10 -2x#

#y=10 -2 xx color(blue)(8#

#y=10 -16#

#color(blue)(y=-6#
