    Do you have a graphing calculator or other utilities?

    Or do they want you to actually draw it. (Either way should be fine)

    You need to graph it and then look for a point of its intersection

    I would just use wolframalpha. The way these equations work out, there's no way you'd get an accurate answer on pencil/paper.

    So to start you need to get y by itself in both equations

    If you were using a TI calculator or some similar, you would have to isolate y.

    3x + 2y = -2 Subtract 3x ......2y = -3x -2 Divide by 2........ y= -3/2x - 1 Do the same for the other one
