your first equation says that
x = 14y
so "substitute" 14y wherever you see x in the other equation
2x+7y=3
2(14y) + 7y = 3
2  8y + 7y = 3
y = 1
y = 1
next sub that y = 1 back into the first equation
x = 1  4(1) = 1+4 = 5

x = 14y
2x+7y=3
Starting with the first equation
since x = 1  4y
Plug that in to the second equation
2(14y)+7y=3
2 8y + 7y = 3
2  y = 3
2/2  y = 3/2
 y = 3/2
Since why can't be negative, move the negative over to the other side
y = 3/2
Okay we found what Y is now plug that into the first equation
x = 14(3/2)
x = 1 + 6
x = 7
so the answer is (7,3/2)
I'm pretty sure this is right, but I hope a real tutor comes and say for sure

In which step is the error? Step 1: Let x = 1 and y = 1. Step 2: By substitution xy = y^2. Step 3: Multiplying both sides by 1, xy= y^2. Step 4: Adding x^2 to both sides, x^2xy=x^2y^2. Step 5: Factoring, x(xy)=(x+y)(xy). Step
