Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

I am going to use elimination method to solve.

14x - 12y = -2 First equation multiplied by 2

-15x +12y = -3 Second equation multiplied by -3

-x = -5

x = 5 Multiply each side by -1

7x - 6y = -1 Equation 1

7(5) - 6y = -1 Substitute the value of x that you found into equation 1

35 - 6y = -1 Simplify

-6y = -1 - 35 Subtract 35 from each side

-6y = -36 Simplify

y = 6 Divide each side by -6
