    Solution:

     2x+y=5  …(i)
     3x+2y=8 …(ii)
    Multiply eq (i) with 2, we get
    4x + 2y = 10 …(iii)
    Subtracting eq (ii) from (iii), we get
    4x + 2y – 3x – 2y = 10 – 8
    x = 2
    Put the value of x in eq (i), we have
    4 + y = 5
    y = 1
    The correct statement is “The solution of the given equations 2x+y=5 and 3x+2y=8 is x = 2 and y = 1.”
    Hence, the given statement is false.
