    Sure Like I said your going to substitute y for x+3 so your going to rewrite you problem as.. x+3=-4x-2 The next thing you need to do is get rid of one of the x's so your going to subtract x from both sides so your new equation is.. 3=-5x-2 (Because its understood that x=1) Your next step is to add 2 to both sides.. 5=-5x Now we want to get x by itself so we divide -5 on both sides, Giving you your final answer of -1=x
