Use the substitution method to solve
-x + 3y=24
5x +8y=-5

• Algebra -

Manipulating the first equation, we get:

x = 3y - 24

5x + 8y = -5

Substitute 3y-24 for x in second equation and solve for y. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for x. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
