    Answer:

    x=6, y= 11

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Simultaneous equations:

    6x+2y=14 —–>1

    5x-2y=8 ——>2

    where 6x+2y=14 is equation 1 and 5x-2y=8 is equation 2.

    Equation 1 minus Equation 2:

    (6x+2y=14)-(5x-2y=8)=>x=6

    substitute x in equation 2:

    5(6)-2y=8

    30-2y=8

    -2y=-22

    Therefore y=11
