Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve for x in the first equation 3x+8=2 after subtracting 8 and dividing both sides by 3, getting x=6/3=2. Now substitute 2 for x in the second equation. Then solve for y. Is that enough help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Fine, when you substitute the 2 for x in the second equation you get: 7(2)+3y=1 or 14+3y=1 Now solve for y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0X was solved in my first response. X is 2 Now we will solve for Y. Using the second equation substitute (2) for the x value. This will get you 7(2)+3y=1 or 14+3y=1 Add 14 to both sides getting 3y=15. Now solve for y by dividing both sides by 3 getting y=5. Now you have the value of both x and y.
