The lines $-2x + y = k$ and $0.5x + y = 14$ intersect when $x = -8.4$. What is the value of $k$?

-2x+y = k     and .5x + y = 14        Use the second equation to find y when x = -8.4

                          .5(-8.4) + y = 14      results in y = 18.2

 

Sub this into the FIRST equation to comput value for k

-2(-8.4) + 18.2 = k         k=35

Here is a graph:
