# Several problems on system of linear equations

1.
Solve the system by addition or substitution.
-9x - 3y = 22
y = -3x - 6

2.
A small company produces both bouquets and wreaths of dried flowers. The bouquets take 1 hour of labor to produce, and the wreaths take 2 hours. The labor available is limited to 80 hours per week, and the total production capacity is 60 items per week. Write a system of inequalities representing this situation, where x is the number of bouquets and y is the number of wreaths.

3.
Solve the system by substitution.
4x - 4y = -16
y = 5x - 8

4.
