Trevor 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 combined like terms incorrectly, it should have been 4x instead of 5x
He subtracted 10 from the right side instead of adding 10 to the right side
He made no mistake

ok thank you

5x − 10 = 10
5x = 0
Do you see anything wrong with this step? I do.
