Given that $\begin{bmatrix} 3&7.5 \\-6 &4.5 \end{bmatrix}_{2\times 2}.\begin{bmatrix}x \\y \end{bmatrix}_{2\times 1}=\begin{bmatrix}6 \\-90\end{bmatrix}_{2\times 1}$

We can simply multiply and get

$\begin{bmatrix} 3x+7.5y\\-6x+4.5y \end{bmatrix}_{2\times 1}=\begin{bmatrix}6 \\-90\end{bmatrix}_{2\times 1}$

compare and write     $3x+7.5y=6$

                                multiply by $10$ on both sides, we get

                                  $30x+75y=60$

                     divide by $15$ into both sides, we get

                             $2x+5y=4$----------$>(1)$

and                    $-6x+4.5y=-90$

                    multiply by $10$ on both sides, we get

                    $-60x+45y-900$

                divide by $15$ into both sides, we get

                       $-4x+3y=-60$-------$>(2)$

from equation $(1)$ and $(2)$,we can solve and get $x=12$ and $y=-4$
