Linear Equations: Solutions Using Elimination with Two Variables To solve systems using elimination, follow this procedure. •    Arrange both equations in standard form, placing like variables and constants one above  the other.   •    Choose a variable to eliminate, and with a proper choice of multiplication, arrange so that  the coefficients of that variable are opposites of one another.
