5x + 3y = 17

-12x + 2y = 4

The first thing you have to do is make one value the same in both equations. I'm going to make the y value the same by multiplying the first equation by 2 and the second equation by 3:

10x + 6y = 34

-36x + 6y = 12

Then, I'll subtract them from each other to get one equation, which will help me solve for X:

46x = 22

x = 11/23

You can then plug this right back in to... more
