Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Im going to solve using elimination 2x+5y=5 (2) x+3y=3(2) Mult. both sides by 2 so you can cancel out the x ______________ 2x+5y=5 2x6y=6 The x's cancel out. Now Its time to solve for y _______________ 5y6y= y y= 11 y cannot be negative, so you will divide both sides by 1 y/=1= 11/1 the why becomes positive and so does 11 y= 11  now were going to substitute 11 for y in one of the original equations Im using 2x+5y=5 2x+5(11)= 5 2x+55= 5 55 55 _______________ 2x= 60 2x/2 = 60/2 2's cancel out leaving x on one side x= 30 your coordinates for this equation is ( 30, 11)
