    Subtract each thing (x, y, and constants - (numbers that aren't variables like 1,2,3....) ) separately. 3x – 4y = 25 - 3x + 2y = 1 -------------------------- -3x - 3x -4y - 2y = 25 - 1 0x -6y = 24 SO FAR SO GOOD?

    yes. and 0x + -6y = 24 is just same as -6y = 24 1) Solve for y. 2) plug in the result for y into any of the ORIGINAL equations 3) Solve for x 4) write the answer as (x,y) where x is the x-value you get AND y, is the y-value you get.
