could someone please help solve by substitution 8x3y=88
4x+48=y

algebra 
Damon,
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 
Damon,
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 = 14x = 8


check
6*.5 + 8 = 3+8 = 11 
By the way 
Damon,
Post new questions as new questions, not under your old one. Otherwise they will be missed.

Sorry, Damon. I removed her question here while you were answering it. I've reposted your answer above.
