    if 2x = y + 9 then let y = 2x - 9 make sense?

    so if you get x alone for one equation, you then replace what you get into the second equation and solve for y

    are you trying to solve it by elimination?

    if you get Y alone in the first equation it would be what the first person said y=2x-9 then you substitute the 2x-9 into the second equation getting 5(2x-9)=10x+45

    10x-45=10x-45*

    both sides equal each other if you combine like terms you get 0=0
