i would multiply the first equations by \(2\) and the second equation by \(3\) that would give \[10x18y=32\]\[6x+18y=48\] then i would add the two equations together to get \[16x=80\] divide by \(16\) to get \(x=5\)

now that you know \(x=5\) you can substitute \(5\) for \(x\) in either equation and solve for \(y\)

\[2(5)+6y=16\]\[10+6y=16\]\[6y=6\]\[y=1\]
