It must have taken longer to take and upload that image than merely typing out the equations would have. I'm mobile, or I might just do it myself. Anywho. 0) google any of the following that you don't understand 1) Write each equation in standard form Ax + By = C 2) use the method of elimination ("systems of equations")

Doubling the first equation then subtracting the second gives 10x + 8  (12x  7) = 18x + 4y + 12  (7x + 4y  9), i.e., 22x + 15 = 25x + 21, so x = (21  15)/3 = 2. Replacing x with 2 in either of the given equations leads to y = 3.
