    Hi FreeBee2071,

    Thank you for your question!

    To find the solution of this linear system, you'll need to transform your equations in the form y=ax+b. When you have this form for each of them, you'll be able to use the comparison method to find the intersection between them. Here's a concept sheet explaining you how to find the intersection:

    Also, in the form y=ax+b, it will be much easier to draw your graph. The parameter b is the y-intercept and a is the rate of change of your function. Here's a concept sheet explaining you how to draw your function:

    I hope that helps and feel free to write us again!
