    1. C = 50h + 200.

    2. C = 25h + 300.

    3. Eq1: C = 50h + 200.
    Eq2: C = 25h + 300.

    Substitute 50h + 200 for C in Eq2:
    50h + 200 = 25h + 300,
    50h - 25h = 300 - 200,
    25h = 100,
    h = 4.

    Substitute 4 for h in Eq1:
    C = 50*4 + 200 = 400.

    4. The Substitution and Elimination
    Methods are more accurate than graphing.
