Answer:Sure

Step-by-step explanation:Here,

2x+3y = 1

or, y = x-8

Now,

x 9 10 11x 9 10 11y 1 2 3Substitute y=x-8 into the first equation

2x+3(x-8)=1

Expand

2x+3x-24=1

Collect like terms

5x-24=1

Move negative 24 to the other side as a positive number

5x= 25

Divide both sides by 5

25/5 is 5

Therefore x is equal to 5

Sub x equal five in second equation

y=5-8

5-8= -3

Therefore, y is equal to -3

Therefore, x is equal to 5 and y is equal to -3
