The given equations are 

3x + 2y = 12 ........(i)

5x − 2y = 4 ..........(ii)

The two points satisfying (i) can be listed in a table as,

x 4 6
y 0 -3

The two points satisfying (ii) can be listed in a table as,

x 3 2
y 5.5 3

Now, the graph of equations (i) and (ii) can be drawn as,

It is seen that the solution of the given system of equations is given by x = 2, y = 3.

Also, it is observed that the lines (i) and (ii) meet the y-axis at the points (0,6) and (0, -2) respectively.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
