Best answer as selected by question asker.
The set of equations 9x - 4y = -109 and 7x+89=y has to be solved for x and y.
Substitute y = 7x+89 in 9x - 4y = -109
=> 9x - 4(7x+89) = -109
=> 9x - 28x - 356 = -109
=> 19x = -247
=> x = -13
y = 7*(-13) + 89 = -2
The solution of the set of equations is x = -13 and y = -2
