Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just out of boredness, I'll solve this by substitution as well. y = x + 5 MULTIPLY by 2 y = 2x  1 2y = 2x + 10 y = 2x  1 ____________ 3y = 9 3y/3 = 9/3 y = 3 Sub Y into the either equation. (Since it was solved via first equation, I'll do the second one) (3) = 2x  1 3 + 1 = 2x 4/2 = 2x/2 2 = x (x,y) (2,3)
