x - y = 9 x + 2y = -6 subtract the two equations simulataneously -3y = 15 y = -5 now solve for x
solve these two equations! subtract the whole of the first equation from the second! the 'x' gets eliminated, and you can find out 'y' then. And use this value of 'y' to get 'x'!
Subtract the two equations what you got??

Sure, take your time..
-3y=-15?
-3y=15
-3y = 15 is right. now solve for y
you do that by dividing both sides by the coefficient of y
Hi abb50.. She is a good girl.. She will calculate on her own.. Do not need to tell her...

nd thanx @waterineyes for all ur help!!! i am learning a lot from u!!!
No need to say thanks... See, from first equation: x - y = 9 So here, x = 9 + y put y: x = 9 + (-5) Now solve for x...
ohk hold on
4!
