You need one of the variable in the equations to be equal (or a negative version of the other) So that when you add or subtract one equation from the other, that variable is eliminated.

So equations: (1) 5x9y=16 (2) 2x+6y=16 We can make them both have 10 as their x coefficients (1) 2*(5x9y=16) (2) 5*(2x+6y=16) simplify (1)10x  18y =  32 (2)10x + 30y =80 Equation 1 minus equation 2: 48y = 48 y=1
