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.
