Answer:
x = 4, y = 2.
Stepbystep explanation:
3y + 5x = 26
2y  5x = 16
Adding these will eliminate x:
5y + 0 = 10
y = 10/5 = 2.
Substitute for y in the first equation:
3(2) + 5x = 26
5x = 26  6
5x = 30
x = 4.
Check to see if these roots are correct in the second equation:
Left side 2(2)  5(4) = 4  20 = 16, so they are correct.
