elimination

4x-6y+4
-2x+7=-3y
 
solve using elimination

Jason S.

4x-6y+4 is not an equation.
 
Did you mean 4x-6y = 4 or 4x = -6y + 4?

If you change the -3y you posted into +3y, then of course it works out as Adam posted below.

Thus the reason I posted the comment asking you to verify that you posted the question correctly.

Have a great day.
