    I am not sure how you learnt to solve this by matrix. Have you heard of the Gaussian elimination?

    Write the denominator determinant first. It is the coefficients of the x's and y's. For the x numerator, replace the x coefficients with the constants. For the y numerator, replace the y coefficients with the constants. Then evaluate the determinants.
