Carlos solved the system of equations below. What mistake did he make in his work? 2x + y = 5 x − 2y = 10 y = 5 − 2x x − 2(5 − 2x) = 10 x + 10 + 4x = 10 5x + 10 = 10 5x = 0 x = 0 2(0) + y = 5 y = 5 He should have substituted 5 + 2x He did not distribute correctly He combined like terms incorrectly, it should have been 4x instead of 5x He made no mistake

    Didn't realize it's multiple choices. Look carefully at step two and three.
