hello

x -2y= -8

-2x +5y = 21   ( i hope the second equation is like this ,if there is any changes please message)


x-2y = -8

x= 2y-8

substitute this value of x, x= 2y-8 in -2x +5y = 21

                                                         -2 ( 2y-8 )+5y =21

                                                         -4y +16 +5y =21

                                                                     y = 21-16

                                                                    y=5 .....................ANSWER

substitute y=5  in x -2y= -8

                             x - 2*5=-8

                            x = -8 +10

                             x=2........................................ANSWER


ANSWER IS

y=5

x=2
