  1. This is a system of equations
    divide by 3 on the first to get
    y=10/3-5/3 then put that in for y on the other equation to get x, and you have solved the system of equations x=(whatever) and y=(whatever).

  2. You have a typo in the first equation, no x term
    re-write the second one as
    2 x - 1 = 3 y
    then you have whatever your first equation was supposed to be = 2 x - 1
    since they are both equal to 3y
    solve for x
    then go back and get y
