All you have to do is pick your favorite variable from one equation (v or a) and solve for it, then substitute whatever answer you get into the other equation.

I think the 'v' variable would be easiest to work on here

if u want to solve for a u plug in v3 into the top equation for a. if u want to solve for v u plug in 3+a into the top equation for v

5av=23 a+v=3 (copied so that I may see it properly) 5av=23 Subtract 5a from both sides now v = 23 5a But the variable cannot be negative. Multiply both sides by 1. v = 23 + 5a Now substitute this equation into  a + v = 3, in the 'v' slot.
