This implies 9a - b = 10b + 80, 9a -b = -12b -2a, 10b + 80 = -12b -2a

Manipulating the second equation gives us 9a - b = -12b - 2a ==> 11a + 11b = 0

//kudos please, if the above explanation is good

So it means =

9a - 11b = 80................... (i)
2a + 22b = -80..................(ii)

11a + 11b = 0
