Answer:

x=-3

y=1

Step-by-step explanation:

x+y=-2…(1)

2x-3y=-9…(2)

In equation (1) make x the subject of formula by subtracting y from both sides

x=-2-y…(3)

Substitute (3) into (2)

2(-2-y)-3y=-9

Open the bracket

-4-2y-3y=-9

Collect like terms

-2y-3y=-9+4

-5y=-5

Divide both sides by-5

y=1

Substitute y=1 into(3)

x=-2-1

x=-3

Therefore,x=-3,y=1
