You are substituting for y instead of x
Besides that you were still keeping the y as well.
5(3-2y) + 4y = 8
15 - 10y + 4y = 8
-6y = -7
y = 7/6
then in x = 3-2y
x = 3-14/6 = 2/3
x = 2/3 , y = 7/6
i understand how you got the answer i just don't get why i don't put 5x+4y before the equation because i have been for all the other ones and i got those ones right..
for example this one:
i isolated the second equation into y=3+x
then i subbed in the other equation..
and i checked my answer and it was correct.
i just don't understand what i'm doing wrong for the equation.. because i keep thinking the full equation must go first not seperate it.
