Do you understand how to substitute?
yeh
Okay, firstly, you want one equation as either Y or X by itself.

If you do that part, i'll then explain the next step.
okay wat the next step
write the equation you've got for your isolated variable in here.
|dw:1360887641308:dw| is that right how i solve for y
- 7y + - 7y is not zero and 4x + x is 5x
You need a variable to cross out when you add down. Try multiplying one of the equations by a certain number so that one variable crosses out when you add down.
could u show me the step please @Rachel98
Okay, here is an example problem I'll draw it.
|dw:1360888023089:dw|
Now see how none of the variables cross off? So I'm going to try multiplying the first equation by - 1 and see what happens.
|dw:1360888146491:dw|
Now see if you add straight down a variable crosses off when you add down. - y and y can also be put as - 1y and 1y. Look at the numbers - 1 + 1 = 0, so that crosses off.
|dw:1360888346035:dw|
Now all we have to do is divide both sides by - 1, so undo the multiplication
|dw:1360888489391:dw|
So we have our x value, now what about y? What we do is we plug in the x value (substitute 8 for x) in one of the original equations. In this case the bottom equation is easier to do this.
could u help me with my problem cuz i dont understand ur problem
|dw:1360888601809:dw|
See, in my problem how I multiplied one equation by - 1? Try doing that with either one of your equations and then add down.
Remember, a negative * a negative is a positive.
