y = x + 5 5x1 = x + 5 ... plug in y = 5x  1 now solve for x

2nd method is..plot the graph of both functions (straight lines ) intersection points will be the solution .. You can solve any qu. of this type by plotting graph. ( clearly two straight lines can intersect only at one point so your ans . is one).

well it's not x = 3, it should be x = 1 so this suggests that there is only one solution
