5x + 6y = 50

-x + 6y = 26

Elimination

-x + 6y = 26

Elimination

5x+6y=50

-x+6y=26

Make the second problem and multiply everything by -1

5x+6y=50

-1(-x+6y=26)

X-6y=-26

Eliminate the y and combine evrything

6x=24

Divide 6 both sides

X=4

Then substitute the x

-(4)+6y=50

-4+6y=50

Add 4 both sides

6y=54

Divide 6 and y=9 x=4

Multiply one of the equations by -1

5x+6y=50

-1(-x+6y=26) =x-6y=-26

Cancel out the 6y’s add the rest

6x=24

X=4

Substitute x back into the original

-(4)+6y=26

-4+6y=26

6y=30

Y=5

Get the point (4,5)
