I have tried these problem cannot get the answer so could some one help me.
Solve by the subsitution method.
2x-7y=-11
2x +17=y
What is the solution of the system.

• algebra -

I have tried to work those problem all I ask is for your help

• algebra -

the second equation tells you exactly what y is
y = 2x+17
put that into the first:
2x - 7(2x+17) = -11

I am sure you can finish that.
Once you have the x, sub that back into your
y = 2x + 17
