    well yeah i did that multiplying it by -2 so that when i add it in the second question -14x and 14X cancel out (I'm using linear combinations here)

    In the first equation you do 2y times -2 = -4y. Now in the 2nd equation you have -4y soo -4y+ -4y is -8y which means that the ys don't cancel out
