    plug this point into each equation and see if you get the same thing on both sides for each equation

    \[3(-2)+2(-5)=4 \] is this true?

    and -6+(-10) is not 4 so what can you conclude from this?

    So this means you should work through the problems to learn from your mistakes and you will get better at doing these.

    Sorry man, if you don't want to get helped, you won't get helped. If myininaya is the one helping you, you get help the way she wants to give it. You should have felt free to ask someone else for help in chat or something, but in the meantime please be polite to the people who are taking the time to try and help you with your problems.

    Fosterthepeople, as shadowfiend has already told you - you don't get to choose how people help you. If myininaya wasn't helping you the way that you would have liked, you can always go to chat and attempt to find someone else. Regardless, you need to make sure you maintain a respectful tone because 1) she's helping you out and 2) she's a moderator.
