Solve the following system of equations. Please show your work to receive full credit. x - y = 13 2x + y = 2 Part 2: Explain which method you chose to solve the system and why you felt it was the best choice.
use addition or elimination and add the two equations together you will get: 3x=15 then divide by 3 to get that x=5 plug in x=5 into the first equation to get: 5-y=13 and solve for y -y=8 so y=-8 check answer using the second equation: 2(5)+ (-8) = 2 10-8=2, 2=2 check so the answer is (5, -8)
