    - the first one is to take the addition of both equations. This allows you to solve x. y can be calculated easily after you have x. - the second method is to represent x in the mean of y. I don't remember the Mathematics term so i will do it for you. The first equation gives \[x=(20+3y)\div7 \] take this into the second equation \[5(20+3y)\div7 + 3y = 16\] Of course the first method is much comfortable. Enjoy your math
