Distribute first and second equation:
`3y - 6x = 5y - 10x - 8`
`-1/3x + 5/3y = y - x - 4` Multiply by 3 to get rid of denominators.
`-x + 5y = 3y - 3x - 12`
Rewrite both h equations in standard form: `ax + by = c`
`4x -2y = -8`
`2x +2y = -12` Divide both equations by 2.
`2x - y = -4`
`x + y = -6` Add the 2 equations together to solve for x.
`3x = -10` Divide by 3.
`x = -10/3` Substitute in equation to solve for y.
`-10/3 + y = -6`
`y = -8/3`
Solution: `(-10/3, -8/3)`
