    \[\frac{ x-2 }{ 3 } + \frac{ y+1 }{ 5 } = 2\] \[\frac{ x+2 }{ 7 } - \frac{ y+5 }{ 3 } = -2\]

    Multiply the first equation by 15 and the second eqaution by 21 to get rid of denominators.

    first get rid of the fractions by multiplying each equation by the LCM of the 2 denominators which is 15 and 21 as mathstudent55 stated

    now simplify it further: 5x - 10 + 3y + 3 = 30 5x + 3y = 30 + 10 - 3 5x + 3y = 37
