    Okay this is how u solve systems. First solve one equation for one variable.

    So solve the first equation for x, or y, doesn't matter. Let's solve for x: x-y=10 Add y to both sides. What do u get?

    Correct. Now plug that into the second equation: x + y = 8, but now that u know x, plug that instead of x in here. What do u get?
