    when you add these 2 equations the terms in y disappear to give 5x^2 = 2 solve for x (there will be 2 solutions) and plug these into one of the original equations to find the values of y.

    2x^2-3y^2=-19 3x^2+2y^2-30

    ok to do this you multiply equation 1 by 2 and equation 2 by 3 to give 4x^2 - 6y^2 = -38 9x^2 + 6y^2 = 90 is that = 30 in second equation?

    ok so if you add these 2 equations you will eliminate y

    when you multiply equations be sure to multiply each term
