Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's solve this system using substitution. \[\large \color{royalblue}{y=2x5}\]\[\large x2\color{royalblue}{y}=8 \qquad \rightarrow \qquad x2\color{royalblue}{(2x5)}=8\] From here, we can solve for x since that is the only variable in our equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes c: If we solve for x, we can plug that x value into one of the two equations to find a corresponding y value. That will be the coordinate pair we were looking for.
