could someone please help solve by substitution 8x-3y=-88
4x+48=y

  • algebra - ,

    8 x - 3 y = -88

    8 x - 3 (4 x + 48) = -88

    8 x - 12 x - 144 = -88

    -4 x = 56

    x = -14

    then get y

  • algebra - ,

    x 30 sec or .5 min
    y 60 sec or 1 min

    x + y = 14

    .5 x + y = 11
    ---------------- subtract
    .5 x + 0 y = 3
    x = 6
    y = 14-x = 8
    ----------------------------
    ----------------------------
    check
    6*.5 + 8 = 3+8 = 11
