How do i do thois problem?Please help.

Problem #1

solve the system by subtraction.

5x-3y=13

4x-3y=11

Subtract the lower equation's left and right terms from the upper equation's corresponding terms. The first step will get you this:

x = 2

Now that you know x, use either of the two equations, and substitute of x=2, to solve for y.
