# In Exercises 33 to 38, use algebra to find the point of intersection of the two lines whose equations are provided. Use Example 7 as a guide. 2 x + 3 y = 7 and x + 3 y = 2

To determine

To find:

The point of intersection of the two lines 2x+3y=7 and x+3y=2 using algebra.

Explanation

The point of intersection of two lines is found by using Addition or Subtraction property of Equality.

Subtract x+3y=2 from 2x+3y=7.

The resultant equation is x=5.

Now substitute x=5 in 2x+3y=7.

Then,

2×5+3y=7

10+3y=7
