How would you solve the problem below using the subsitution method?

12x + 4 = 8y

y = x - 7

Please explain to me and help. If you could show all the steps, that would help a lot. Thank you.

put the y equation in the first equation.

12x+4=8*(x-7)

12x+4=8x-56

subtract 8x from each side, subtract 4 from each side.

Then having solved for x, put that into the original y= equation
