    Substitution means solving one equation for x or y then plugging it into another equation. Though I would use the elimination method for both of these systems. For the first system, multiply (5x+3y=25) by -2 and you will get -10x+-6y=-50. Then u can cancel out the 10x and -10x. In the second system, multiply -3

    ok eq 1) (5x+3y=25) * -2= -10x + -6y =-50 eq 2) 10x + 6y = 20 the 10x and the -10x cancel out to zero. as well as the -6y and the 6y.
