Solve the system by using a table

A. (4,-3)

======================================================================================

I'm not sure how to solve "using a table"  [ maybe someone else knows  ???]

If we mutiply both equations by 10 to clear the decimals, we have

5x - 3y = 27    .....and.....

-6x - 6y = -6      divide through by -6   and we have      x + y  = 1    which implies that, y =  1 - x

Substituting this into the first equation, we have

5x - 3(1 - x)  = 27   simplify

5x - 3 + 3x =  27

8x -3 = 27

8x = 30

x = 30/8  =  15/4 =  3.75       and y = 1 - 15/4 =  -11/4   = -2.75

Mmmmmm...it doesn't look like any of these answers work!!!   [I checked this with WolframAlpha....my solutions are correct  !!! ]   Oct 14, 2015
