were gonna do this together okay, real simple, first, we should add the first equation to the second equation okay: 2x − 5y = 11 −2x + 3y = −9 +  What do you get?

really? just look at this we have to add it like we would normally, it dosent matter if there are x and y's (2x)+(2x)=0

what? how did you get y=1,3, from 2y=2, you have to solve for y

if you have 2y=2, you dont know how to get y by ?itself

okay if i have 2y=2, then what should be done is divide both sidezs by 2, that gives us y=1

now, simply replace y=1 into one of your orginal equation and get x
