## anonymous one year ago Solve the following system of equations: x - 2y = 14 x + 3y = 9 A) (1, 12) B) (-1, -12) C) (12, -1) D) (12, 1)

We want to cancel out each varible to find the value x - 2y = 14 x + 3y = 9 A negative - a positvive results in a 0 so whats the opposite of 1 ?

-1

3. pooja195

Good -1(x - 2y = 14) x + 3y = 9 $\huge~\rm~-1(x - 2y = 14)$ distribute

how would I do that

5. pooja195

-1 times x = ? -1 times -2 =? -1 times 14=?
