## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

x = $\frac{2}{3}$ y = - $\frac{1}{3}$
6x - 3y = 5 x + 2y = 0 minus 2y to both sides to the second equation x + 2y - 2y = 0 - 2y x = - 2y substitude x = -2y to the first equation 6 ( -2y ) - 3y = 5 -12y -3y = 5 simplify - 15y = 5 $\frac{-15 y}{-15}$ =$\frac{5}{-15}$ divide by -15 y = - $\frac{1}{3}$ divide by 5 x = -2y substitude y to x x = -2 ( $\frac{ - 1}{3}$) y = $\frac{2}{3}$
