3. Solve the system of equations by the substitution method

x + 3y = 32
-3x + 2y = 3

4. Solve the system of equations

x + y = 5
x - y = -9

3x - 2y = 6

2x + 3y = 6

The slope-intercept form of the equations are:

Y = 3/2x - 3
Y = -2/3x + 2

Since the slopes are 3/2 and -2/3, the lines are perpendicular.
