Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0substitution method = substitute... from your second eq: x=3y18 substitute value of x in first eq: 5*(3y18)+3y=0 solve it for y, then find x... let me know if there is a problem :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0solve the second equation for x since it has a 1x as the number in front of the variable: x = 3y 18 plug the (3y  18) in place of x in the first equation. (MAJOR RULE: You must always substitute into the other equation!!): 5(3y18) +3y = 0 distribute: 15y  90 + 3y =0 combine like terms and solve: 18y = 90 y = 5 Then plug in 5 for y in EITHER of the original equations. Choose the easier one: x  3(5) =18 then solve for x: x  15 = 18 x = 3 Final answer: (3, 5) you can check by plugging x and y into both equations to verify that it works for both. if it does, it has to be the right answer.
