Simultaneous equations

-2x + y = -3

-x + 2y = 3

Multiply the bottom equation by '-2'

Hence

-2x + y = -3

2x - 4y = -6

-3y = -9

Divide both sides by '-3'

y = (+)3

Substitute in to either equ'n for 'x'

-2x + 3 = -3

Subtract '3' from both sides

-2x = -6

Divide both sides by '-2'

x = (+)3

Hence (x,y) = ( 3,3)
