# Linear Equations? Watch

1. ok
I can solve the equations for example:
2x+3y=8
3x-y=23
the answer is x=7 and y=-2
-------------------------------------------------------------
how do we draw the 2 straight lines
because i only have x=7 and y=-2
how do we know the rest of the lines
2. No x=7 and y = -2 is the point of intersection of the lines
i.e
(7, -2) is the point where the lines and meet.

EDIT: Misread the question. Rearrange the equations into the form and it's easy to draw that
