The equation 3 by 3 is 9. This is a math equation.

Use the substitution method to solve the following system of linear equations -3x-y equals 3 -3x-5y equals -21?

From first equation, -y = 3x + 3. Substitute in second equation: -3x + 5(3x + 3) = -21 ie 12x = -36 so x = -3 and y = -(-9 + 3) = 6. Easier method: subtract first equation from second giving -4y = -24 so y = 6, this in first equation gives -6 = 3x + 3, ie 3x = -9 so x = -3
