### Example 8

Use addition to solve the following system of equations. Warning: there may be fractions.

### Example 9

Use addition, i.e. elimination, to solve the following system of equations. Remember, it's possible for a system of equations to have no solutions or infinitely many solutions. If it has infinitely many solutions, you don't need to write them all down. We'll let you off the hook with that one.
