Sorry, I forgot to add the objective function.

C=80x+20y

Probably a little late, but this is how you solve it:

You are given two formulas:
x + y = 8
2x + y = 10

First manipulate them so that you have a common variable alone. I did:
y = 8 - x
y = 10 - 2x

Since y = y you can combine these formulas to create:
8 - x = 10 - 2x

Solve this to find x.
x = 2

Plug x into one of the original formulas:
(x) + y = 8
(2) + y = 8

Solve for y.
y = 6

You now have x and y.
(2,6)

Plug x and y into the objective function:
C = 80(x) + 20(y)
C = 80(2) + 20(6)

Solve for C.
C = 160 + 120
C = 280

C.(2,6) Maximum value is 280
