    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.

    6=s
    18=f

  • Algebra 1 -

    f=14
    s=10

  • Algebra 1 -

    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.
