Solve the following system of equations:\begin{align*} 3x-5y&=-11,\\ 7x+2y&=-12. \end{align*}Express your answer as an ordered pair $(x,y).$

We can try solving this by canceling a variable so \(2(3x-5y)=-2(11), 5(7x+2y)=5(-12)\)then:\(35x+10y+(6x-10y)=-60+(-22)\)we simplify it into \(41x=-82,(x,y)=(-2,1)\)

Do you understand?laugh
