solve the system by substitution..

  • Fundamentals of math -

    -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.
