    well, you know that y = 4x + 8, so you just substitute that for y in the first equation

    y=2x+10 2x+10=4x+8 solve

    2x+2=4x 2x=2 x=1

    first you would find y in terms of x

    it would be (4x + 8) - 2x = 10

    so you combine like terms first

    4x and -2x being like terms

    How do you get -2x?

    because in our equation, it says (4x + 8) - 2x = 10. minus 2x is the same as -2x

    so to combine 4x and -2x, it would be 4x - 2x, which is...

    Its y = 2x - 10 y = -4x + 8

    ok, so it would be 2x - 10 = -4x + 8

    now you have to add 4x to both sides
