Pleeeese help!

Use the substitution method to solve each linear system:

-x+3y+1=0

3x-y+1=0

4x-3y=-13

-2x+y=4

Please help, thanks:):)!!!!

1.

from the 1st equation: x = 3y+1

into the 2nd:

3(3y+1) - y +1 = 0

9y + 3 - y +1 = 0

8y = -4

y = -1/2

sub into 2nd:

3x - (-1/2) + 1 = 0

3x = -3/2

x = -1/2

Do #2 the same way

from the 2nd: y = 2x+4

etc

(Just stating the answers is not acceptable and serves no purpose)
