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.
