I forgot how to solve for two variables... Please check if I solved both problems properly! Thank you.
Equations: (solve for t and z)
12t + 4z = 80
2t + 4z = 20
My answer: t = 2, z = 14
The steps:
(simplified it)
z = 20  3t, z = 5  0.5t
(equated both sides to isolate for t)
20  3t = 5  0.5t
t = 2
(sub t = 2 into one of the equations)
z = 20  3(2)
z = 14

Equations: (solve for t and z)
z = 2 + 6t
z 20  3t
My answer: t = 2, z = 14
(I did the same steps like the previous question, my answer is kind of iffy because it's the same???)

Your answers are wrong.
203t=5.5t does NOT come out t=2
redo that. Another quick way to do this is take your original equations, subtract the second from the first, and you get
10t=60 which is pretty fast to solve in your head.
