Solve by substitution method
3x+8y=17
2x+y=14
please show step by step so i can understand better. I keep getting it wrong at the end.

Subtract 2x from both sides of 2x+y=14.

y = 14-2x

3x+8y=17

Substitute 14-2x for y in second equation and solve for x. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
