The system of equations are and *.*

Equation (1)

* * Equation (2)

Since , substitute * *for *y* in the first equation.

Apply subtraction property of equality:* *Subtract 2*x* from each side.

Rearrange the terms using commutative property of addition: *a* + *b *= *b *+ *a*.

(Apply additive inverse property: )

(Apply additive identity property: )

(Subtract: )

(Subtract 8 from each side)

(Apply additive inverse property: )

(Apply additive identity property: )

(Subtract: )

Apply division property of equality:* *Divide each side by negative 6.

(Cancel common terms)

(Divide: )

Now, find the *y* value by substituting in Equation 2.

(Multiply: )

(Add: )

The system of solution is .
