A. 264.
B. 428.
C. 464.
D. 622.
E. 642.


Given -3x+4y=28 ---Eq 1
3x -2y =8 -- Eq 2

Sum both eqns we get 2Y = 36 => Y = 18

Sub 2Y in eq 2 => 3X - 36 = 8.
=> X = 44/3

Now XY = 44/3 * 18 = 264.

Option A is correct answer.

E. 642.


-3x+4y=28
3x-2y=8

Adding both equations
2y= 36
y=18

Substituting 2y= 36 in any of the equations we get x= 44/3

44/3 *18= 44*6= 264

A is the answer
