Answer:x = -9

y = -3

Step-by-step explanation:We can first multiply the 2nd equation by -6, so we have:

Now, we add up this equation to the 1st equation given to eliminate y and solve for x. Shown below:

So, we have the value of x to be -9

Now, we substitute this value in 1st equation and solve for y:

The value of y is -3

So,

x = -9y = -3
