    Try solving for y on the first equation and then replace what you found y to equal in the first equation into the second equation.. make sense?

    I might be too late here but the far easier method is to solve for x in the second equation and sub that into the first equation

    yea anytime you are using substitution and you have an equation where one of the variables has a coefficient of 1 then use that equation to solve for that variable that way you will not run into fractions as much.
