Solve for: {\text{begin}array l 3x+2y=6 } 5x+4y=8\text{end}array .

Expression: $\left\{\begin{array} { l } 3x+2y=6 \\ 5x+4y=8\end{array} \right.$

Multiply both sides of the equation by $-2$

$\left\{\begin{array} { l } -6x-4y=-12 \\ 5x+4y=8\end{array} \right.$

Sum the equations vertically to eliminate at least one variable

$-x=-4$

Change the signs on both sides of the equation

$x=4$

Substitute the given value of $x$ into the equation $3x+2y=6$

$3 \times 4+2y=6$

Solve the equation for $y$

$y=-3$

The possible solution of the system is the ordered pair $\left( x, y\right)$

$\left( x, y\right)=\left( 4, -3\right)$

Check if the given ordered pair is the solution of the system of equations

$\left\{\begin{array} { l } 3 \times 4+2 \times \left( -3 \right)=6 \\ 5 \times 4+4 \times \left( -3 \right)=8\end{array} \right.$

Simplify the equalities

$\left\{\begin{array} { l } 6=6 \\ 8=8\end{array} \right.$

Since all of the equalities are true, the ordered pair is the solution of the system

$\left( x, y\right)=\left( 4, -3\right)$
