## Answers ( No )

substitute x = -11 + y in 10x – 5y = -10

10(-11+y)-5y=10 distribute 10 with -11 and y

10(-11) + 10(y) – 5y=10 =>> -110 +10y -5y =10

combine like terms -110 +5y=10

add 110 to both sides to get the variable on one side 5y = 10+110 (120)

5y=120 divide both sides by 5 to get variable by itself 120/5=24

so y = 24

now replace the y with 24 to find x

x=-11+

2424 – 11 = 13x=13

therefore, y=24 and x=13

hope this helps 🙂
