Simultaneous Equation with fractions? watch

1. If anyone could show me how how to work out a question such as this, it would be really helpful.

2. 2x+3y=10 => x= (10-3y)/2

sub into below equation, then multiply up by y or ysquared and get a disguised quadratic. could be wrong
3. If you multiply the second equation by then the solutions will still be the same (unless you get x=0 or y=0 as a result, in which case leave it out... can you see why?)

I would multiply the equation with the fractions by xy
