4. 8x - 7y = -2
-2x - 3y = 10

Solution: __________
5. 2x - 2y = 5
4x - 4y = 9

Solution: __________
6. 2x + 7y = 2
4x + 2y = -2

Solution: __________
7. 2x - y = 7
2x + 7y = 31

Solution: __________
8. x - 2y = -4
4y = 2x + 8

Solution: __________

B. Tell whether it is more efficient to solve for x and then substitute for x or to solve for y and then substitute for y. Explain your reasoning. Then solve the system.
