THe addition method is adding one term to another to get a variable to cancel out.
You can multiply the equations by various numbers first to get the variables just right so they cancel

It doesn't matter what variable we choose to cancel out. Let's do x
ok!
We need the number in front of the first x to be the opposite of the second x, like 5, -5, or -3, 3, so they'll add to zero.
Lets multiply the first equation by 5 and the second one by -3 so we'll get a 15x and a -15x
5(-3x+7y=-1) -15x+35y=-5
second equation: -3(-5x-4y=14) 15x+12y=-42
Do you see what I did there?
wynwyn? uthere?
Yes yes yes i see!!
kk... now u just add the equations together. -15x+35y=-5 + 15x=12y=-42
(4 second equation: supposed to be 15x+12y=-42)
so. -15x+15x=0. 35y+12y=47y -5+-42=-47 0+47y=-47
Now just solve for y. 47y=-47 y=-1
Now that u know what y is, plug it back into an equation (it doesn't matter which) and solve for x
-3x+7y=-1 -3x+7(-1)=-1 -3x-7=-1 -3x=6 x=-2
ok
It looks like you want your final answer to be an ordered pair, like a point on a graph. a point is always in the form (x,y), so your final answer is -2,-1
choice b
Thank you so much!!!
welcome! Medal?
tnx :)
no problem! =D
