# 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.
