x−2y=−6 Solving for x. Add 2y to both sides. x−2y+2y=−6+2y x=2y−6.  x−2y=−6 Add -x to both sides. x−2y+−x=−6+−x −2y=−x−6 Solving for y. Step 2: Divide both sides by -2. −2y−2=−x−6−2 y=1/2x+3 3x−2y=2 Solving for x. Add 2y to both sides. 3x−2y+2y=2+2y 3x=2y+2 Divide both sides by 3. 3x/3 = 2y+2/3 x=2/3y+2/3 3x−2y=2 Solving for y. Add -3x to both sides. 3x−2y+−3x=2+−3x −2y=−3x+2 Divide both sides by -2. −2y/−2 = −3x+2/−2 y=3/2x−1
