Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so first you can take y=2x8 and substitute it into 3x+5y=1. Now it looks like this: 3x +5(2x8)=1. Now distribute. 3x+10x40 = 1. Add like terms. 13x40=1. Add 40 to both sides. 13x = 39. Divide both sides by 13. x = 13. So now we have the x coordinate (13, y) but we still need the Y. As one equation stated, y=2x8. So y=2(13)8. Distribute. y=268 And subtract. y=18. The solution is (13, 18).
