Solve the system of equations for x and y:

y = 3x

2x - 3y = 14

y = 3x

2x - 3y = 14

y = 3x

2x - 3y = 14

2x - 3(3x) = 14 {substituted 3x, in for y, into bottom equation}

2x - 9x = 14 {multiplied -3 by 3x}

-7x = 14 {combined like terms}

x = -2 {divided both sides by -7}

y = 3x {top equation}

y = 3(-2) {substituted -2, in for x, into top equation}

y = -6 {multiplied}

**x = -2 and y = -6**

the point of intersection would be (-2,-6)
