Hi,

multiply the 1rst equation by 2 and then add:

-4x - 2y = 4

5x + 2y = -3

--------------

x = 1 Substitute this value into the 1rst equation:

-2*1 - y = 2

-y = 4

y = -4

I assume that you are looking for the equation of a straight line passing through these two points:

(y - 5)/(x- (-3)) = (3 - 5)/(5 - (-3)) = (-2)/(8) = -1/4 that is the slope of the line:

y - 5 = -1/4*(x+3)

y - 5 = -1/4*x - 3/4

y = -1/4*x + 17/4
