We are required to find the solutions given by the following system of equations; 3x+y=1 5x+y=3 subtracting the top equation form the bottom equation we get: 2x=2 dividing both sides by 2 we get x=1 thus substituting the value of x in the above equation we get: 3(1)+y=1 3+y=1 thus; y=1-3 y=-2 the answer is:(1,-2)
