1. vamgadu

substitute y from the second equation in the first equation. the first equation becomes a quadratic in x then you'll be easily able to solve it

2. GoldRush18

im trying but still don't know if i'm right

3. robtobey

These are the answers after following @vamgadu's recommended procedure:$\left\{\left\{x=-\frac{9}{4},y=-\frac{5}{12}\right\},\{x=2,y=1\}\right\}$

ok thanks but i'm stuck at the part where i substitute y= -1-x/-3 into the first equation
