**Matty**, Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 3:21pmsolve 5r-25=33 first, so move 35 over by adding it so 33+25. meaning now it would be 5r=58.then divide by 5 so r=11.6

Then plug that into the other equation...2r+5s=48 so 2(11.6)+5s=48

23.2+5s=48

subtract 23.2 from both sides.

5s=24.8

divide by 5 on both sides.

s=4.96

final answers: r=11.6

s=4.96
