    Multiply the first equation by -2 and multiply the second equation by -3 so we can begin by eliminating the x when we add them together.

    \[\sf -2(3x+6y=3) \implies\]\[\sf -3(2x-10y=44) \implies \] Work this out first.

    I made a typo in the second post. \[\sf -2(3x+6y=3) \implies\]\[\sf 3(2x-10y=44) \implies\] Work this out instead.
