x=\frac{24}{3}

Consider the first equation. Divide both sides by 3.

x=8

Divide 24 by 3 to get 8.

8+3y=17

Consider the second equation. Insert the known values of variables into the equation.

3y=17-8

Subtract 8 from both sides.

3y=9

Subtract 8 from 17 to get 9.

y=\frac{9}{3}

Divide both sides by 3.

y=3

Divide 9 by 3 to get 3.

x=8 y=3

The system is now solved.
