# How do you solve using elimination of -2x=6y+18 and -29=5y-3x?

Jul 11, 2018

$x = 3 , y = - 4$

#### Explanation:

Dividing the first equation by #-2' we get

$x = - 3 y - 9$
substituting this )for $y$ in the second equation we get

$5 y - 3 \left(- 3 y - 9\right) = - 29$

expanding we get

$5 y + 9 y + 27 = 29$

combining like Terms and adding $- 27$

so we get

$14 y = - 56$

so we get

$y = - 4$
