# substitution method

posted by .

I am burned out on math or just confused.

3x + 7y=10
x= 2-2y

A. Solution is an ordered pair
B. No solution

• substitution method -

this one is easy, just plug the second equation into the first

3x + 7y = 10
3(2-2y) + 7y = 10
6 - 6y + 7y = 10
y = 4

now back into x = 2 - 2y
x = 2 - 8 = -6
