$A.)\\\\-3x + 3y = 0\\x + 6y = 10 \ / *3\\\\-3x + 3y = 0\\3x + 18y = 30\\+------\\21y =30 \ / :21\\ \\y=\frac{30}{21}=\frac{10}{7}\\\\not \ true$

$B.)\\\\-2x + 5y = -6 \ / \cdot 2\\4x - 2y = 4\\ \\-4x + 10y = -12 \\4x - 2y = 4 \\+-------- \\8y=-8\ /:8\\ \\y=-1\\ \\ not \ true$

$C.\\\\5x - 2y = -6 \ / \cdot 2\\3x - 4y = 2 \\ \\ 10x - 4y = -12 \\ 3x- 4y = 2\\+------\\13x=-11 \ / :13\\ \\x=-\frac{11}{13}\\\\ not \ true$

$D.)\\\\2x + 3y = 10\ / \cdot (-2)\\4x + 5y = 18\\\\-4x -6y =-20\\4x + 5y = 18\\+-------\\-y = -2 \ / \cdot (-1)\\ \\y=2$

$2x + 3*2 = 10\\ \\2x=10-6 \\ \\2x=4 \ / :2 \\ \\ x=2 \\ \\ true$
