x-y=10

3x+y=11

i chose to substitute y in the first equation

my final answer was (-1/2 , 5) can someone clarify this, and if it's wrong, where'd i make a mistake?

In the first equation, y= x-10

put that into the second to get

3x + x-10=11

4x=21

x= 4.25

Then you can solve for y.

It's right! Congrats!
