Compare 3p and 4p. Okay. Then compare 2q and -6q. Oh, 2 times 3 is 6, so that will be the easy way to solve.

We will get rid of the q and find p. Multiply 3p +2q = 9 by 3 and add it to the other equation.

So 9p + 6q = 27. Add it to second equation. 13p + zero q = 52

p = 4. Put 4 back into any equation and get q. q = -3/2

Another way is to graph the two lines on graph paper and see where they intersect.
