    1. Use substitution. Solve for y in the first equation. –x + 2y = 6 Add x. 2y = x + 6 Divide by 2. y = 1/2x + 3. Substitute y into the second equation. Solve for x. 6y = x + 18 6(1/2x + 3) = x + 18 Distribute. 3x + 18 = x + 18 Subtract x. 2x + 18 = 18 Subtract 18. 2x = 0 x = 0

    2. The sum of the measures of angle X and angle Y is 90: x + y = 90 X is 30 less than twice the measure of angle Y: x = 2y - 30 You have your two equations. Use substitution. Solve for y in the first equation. x + y = 90 Subtract x. y = -x + 90 Substitute it into the second equation. x = 2y - 30 x = 2(-x + 90) - 30 Distribute. x = -2x + 180 - 30 x = -2x + 150 Add 2x. 3x = 150 Divide by 3. x = 50
