Name ___________________________________ Period _______ Date ________________________ Solving Systems by Elimination – Practice 3 – Multiply First Line up equations so x is over x and y is over y Multiply the equations to make the coefficients of x or y opposite of each other Add the two equations (one variable should be eliminated) Solve for the remaining variable st Plug the answer into 1 equation Write the answer as an ordered pair (x, y) nd Check solution with 2 equation 1) ____________ 2) ____________ 3x + 4y = 22 -y = -2x + 6 x – 5y = -37 5y = -3x + 22 3) ____________ 4) ____________ 2x + 3y = 2 6x + 3y = 6 3x – 4y = -14 8x + 5y = 12 5) ____________ 6) ____________ 4x = -3y + 27 y = -2x + 1 3x = 4y + 29 3x – y = 14
