    This problem is well suited for the use of the "elimination method" further they only want the x value so eliminate the y. this can easily be accomplished by adding the two equations.

    You have to use"Simultaneous equations" Noe you can do both ways here, either Elimination or substitution.

    Simply add them, the y will be eliminated and solve for x.
