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

    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
