    erm, multiply the first equation by \(-2\). that yields\[\begin{cases}-2x = -4y - 16 \\ 2x - 3y = 13\end{cases}\]add both equations and solve for \(y\).

    you already know what x equals...so sub it in for x in the second equation 2(2y+8) - 3y = 13 Now just distribute and simplify

    solve each system by the elimination method 1)3x+2y=10 2x+y=7 2)3x-2y=7 2x-y=8 3)2x+3y=-13 -4x+6y=-10

    you already have the value of x from the first equation just substitute that value and get the answer
