Step 1
Consider the following system of equations:
2x+5y=−8...(1)
x−y=−11...(2)
Multiply equation (2) by 2:
2x−2y=−22...(3)
Subtract equation (1) from equation (2):
7y=14
y=2
Substitute y in the equation (2):
x-2=-11
x=-9
Solution of the simultaneous equation is (−9,2).
Step 2
Hence, the answer is Yes.
