    What are you trying to do? Find the values of x and y? If so, solve for x in the first one, and then substitute that value into the second equation. This will give you y. From here, just substitute the y into either one of the original two equations to get x.

    Also, if the problem asks you to solve it by Cramer's rule, then use Cramer's rule.

    Try to at least set up the problem for Cramer's rule, and we can help you from there.
