# IMP 3

Take a pair of equations and eliminate the same variable from each equation.
Do this by multiplying either equation through by a negative number so that when the coefficients are added together, they will cancel each other out.
3. Solve the sum of the equations by dividing answer by remaining coefficient to get the value for the remaining variable.
4. Substitute the value into one of the original equations.
5. Solve equation by subtracting constant from both sides and dividing by coefficient for remaining variable.
