first let's change the "x1" to "A" Nd the "x2" to "B" __ so now the problem reads "6A + 3B = 60" And "6A - 2B= 80" we want to isolate variable. and the easiest one is the "B" by getting rid of the "A". set up a subtraction problem where you take one equation away from the other. 6a-6a=0. 3b - (-2b) = 5b and 60-80=-20. so your new equation reads 5B= -20. you wanna get B on one side so yu divide 5 on both sides giving you b= -4 or "x2"=-4. from there you can plug -4 into any one of the original equations. ex: 6A -2(-4)=80 then 6A + 8=80 then you subtract 8 from both sides because you're trying to isolate the "A" variable. which leaves you with 6A = 72. and now you wanna get"A" on one side so yu divide 6 from both sides and get A=12 or "x1"=12. do a quick check and plug in these numbers into any one of the equation.
