I have a few questions on systems of linear equations. I tried them and either i get a negative answer that should be positive, or vice versa. I checked the answers on the back of the textbook and answers were different than mine. Please help.

Solve by elimination.

38=2x-5y

75=7x-3y

What i did to solve:

-7(38=2x-5y) 2((75=7x-3y)

-266=-14x+35y 150=14x-6y

150= 14x-6y

+(-266= -14x+35y)

-116 = 29y

-116/-29

y= 4

I use the same process to find x. x=-9

my answer (x,y) = (-9,4)

textbook answer (x,y) = (9,-4)

what did i do differently? where did i go wrong? help

Solve by elimination:

x/3+y/4=2

2x/3-y/2=0

how do i break this down to solve?

i tried and ended up with y=2, text said x,y = 3,4
