## Answers ( No )

Answer: C

Step-by-step explanation:

Answer:Option 3 (7,2) is right answer.

Step-by-step explanation:Given two equations

3x-2y=17 … i

x-3y=1 … ii

We can solve this by elimination.

coefficients of x are 3 and 1 with LCD = 3

Hence multiply ii equation by 3

3x-9y = 3 … iv

3x-2y = 17 … i

Subtract i from iv

-7y = -14

Divide by -7

y =2

Substitute in ii

x-3(2) = 1

x=7

Hence solution is (7,2)

Verify:

We can verify our solution by substituting in i and ii.

3(7)-2(2) = 17 and 7-6 =1
