# If y = x – 6 and x = – 4 what is the solution to the system of equations?

We will use the concept of linear equations to find the solution to the system of equations.

## Answer: For y = x – 6 and x = – 4, the solution to the system of equations is (x, y) = (-4, -10).

Let us see how can we use the concept of linear equations to find the solution to the system of equations.

**Explanation:**

Given:

y = x – 6 -------------- (1)

x = – 4 -------------- (2)

Substituting x = -4 in (2) we get,

⇒ y = -4 - 6

⇒ y = -10
