Solution: (11, -4)

Work Step by Step

Our two equations are: 1. 2x+5y=2 2. 3x-5y=53 First I will add both equation to eliminate the y-terms. We get: 5x=55 Now solve for x by dividing both sides by 5. We get: x=11 Now that we know the value of x, lets substitute it back into one of the original equations to find the value of y. 2(11)+5y=2 22+5y=2 (Subtract 22 from both sides) 5y=-20 (Divide both sides by 5) y=-4 So our solution is (11,-4)
