I tried,
11x+15y+23=0------1
7x-2y-20=0-----------2
11x+15y=-23
=>y=-23x-11x/15 (substituting the value of y in eq 2)
11x+15(-23x-11x/15)=20Fri, 18 Jul 2014 14:35:35 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/23473/please-help/Answer by Gregory Bard for <p>11x+15y+23=0, 7x-2y-20=0

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/23473/please-help/?answer=23478#post-id-23478# To do this in Sage, I tried the following, which worked:
var("x y")
solve( [11*x+15*y+23 ==0, 7*x-2*y-20 == 0], [x,y] )
# However, I'm wondering if what you really want to know is how to do this by hand... If so, please consider reading
