Type the ordered pair that is the solution to these equations. top line 2x + 5y = -9 bottom line3x - 4y = -2

multiply first equation by 3, 3(2x+5y) =3(-9)

6x+15y = -27

multiply second equation by -2, -2(3x-4y) = -2(-2)

-6x +8y = 4

If you add the two new equations: 6x-6x +15y+8y = -27+4

23y = -23 , y = -1

Plugging in y= -1, in equation 1, 2x-5 = -9 , 2x = -4, x = -2 (-2,-1) is your answer.
