How do I solve the following by substitution:
5x -2y =-5
y - 5x = 3

8x - 4y = 16
y = 2x - 4

4x -12y =5
-x + 3y = -1

  1. 5x -2y =-5
    y - 5x = 3

    5x -2y =-5
    -5x +y = 3

    5x -2y =-5
    10x -2y =-6

    15x =-1

    x= -1/15

    (-1/15x5) -2y =-5

    -1/3 -2y=-5
    +1/3 +1/3

    -2y= 4 2/3
    /-2 /-2

    y= -2 1/3

    x= -1/15
    y= -2 1/3
