f = 2s + 6
s + f = 24
Substitute 2s+6 for s in second equation and solve for s. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for f. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

s + f = 24
f = 2s + 6
substitute 2s + 6 in for f, so the equation will read s + 2s + 6 = 24. solve for s.
next, take the value of s and put it in for s in the problem f = 2s + 6.
check your answers by substituting the s and f values in the second equation.
