**drwls**, Sunday, November 14, 2010 at 8:38amSubstitute 11 -3y for x in the second equation.

Why? Because the first equation tells you that

x = 11 -3y.

You should get

3(11 -3y)= 3 + y

33 - 9y = 3 + y

10y = 30

y = ___ ?

Then solve for x, using either of the first two equations you were given.
