**Dr. Jane**, Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 3:38pm-3x - 5y = -17

4x+8 = y I solve this for y

Now rewrite the first equation and put in 4x + 8 for y.

-3x -5(4x+8) = -17

solve for x. Be sure to multiply both 4x and 8 by negative 5.

Once you have x, you can find y in the original equation.

Also, always check your x and y in both equations to be sure you have not made a mistake.
