First, try to see if you can cancel out any of the variables by adding the equations.

4x+2y-1 also equals 4x+2y=1

(4x+2y=1)(2) = 8x+4y=2

now, add the two equations and see the y cancel out.

2x-4y=2

8x+4y=2

10x=4

x=4/10=2/5

Plug this number back into the equation (any of those two) and find y.
