In the substitution method, you first need to solve one equation for one variable. In this case, that step is already done because the second equation shows what a is equal to. In other words, the second equation is already soved for a.

The second step is to substitute the variable a in the first equation with what a is equal to in the second equation. Since a = 20  2b, everywhere you see a in the firtst equation, wrtite 20  2b

No. The first equation is 2a + 4b = 24 Where you see a, write (20  2b) You should have no a's left there.

You ask for step by step help. I give you step by step help, but you skip a bunch of steps. You still haven't shown what you got after the substitution.

Where is it then? It should look like this: 2a + 4b = 24 2(20  2b) + 4b = 24
