X + 3y = 7
x - 3y = 1
x + 3y = 7
- 3y -3y
x = 7 - 3y
x - 3y = 1
7 - 3y - 3y = 1
7 -6y = 1
-7 -7
-6y = -6
y = 1
Now solve for x
X + 3y = 7
x + 3 = 7
x = 4
Now we have our values:-
x = 4 and y = 1
Answer: A) x = 4, y = 1

x+3y=7
x-3y=1
add them together
x+3y=7
x-3y=1 +
2x+0y=8
2x=8
divide 2
x=4
subsitute
x+3y=7
4+3y=7
subtract 4
3y=3
divid 3
y=1
x=4
y=1
answer is A
