# How do you solve the system of equations #2.5x+y=-2# and #3x+2y=0#?

##### 2 Answers

**Solution:**

#### Explanation:

we get,

Solution:

x = -2, y = 3

#### Explanation:

Rearrange one of the equations to give an expression for one of the variables in terms of the other i.e.

(

It doesn't matter which eqn we start with, so rearranging eqn1

Put this value for **other** eqn (in this case into eqn2)

multiply out and simplify

Now put this value for

eqn1

or eqn2

We can start with either eqn and find either **other eqn** to substitute our expression into to solve for the variable.
