Homework Help: Substitution Method-Plz help

Posted by Svetlana on Tuesday, October 17, 2006 at 3:34pm.

Use the Substitution method to solve the system of equations.

x + y = -4
x - y = 2


solve for x in the second equation.

x= y+2

Put that in for x in the first equation:
x+y=-4
(y+2) + y = -4
solve for y. Then, x= y+2


i don't get it.How did you get that?What does x equal?


re read my post. I tell you how I got it. you will have then to solve for x, then, put that value of x back in the equation, and solve for y. Post your work.


does x =5?

figure out how to solve this
problem but i just can't.
