The equations of linear system are .

Since the coefficient of the *y* - term in two equations is same. So, eliminate these terms by subtracting the equations.

Write the equations in column form and subtract to eliminate variable *y*.

.

The resultant equation is and solve it for *x*.

Divide each side by 6.

Cancel common terms.

.

Substitute the value of in equation 1: and solve for *y.*

Add to each side.

Multiply each side by .

Cancel common terms.

.

The solution is .

The solution is .
