    Well you can solve this by graphing, substitution, or elimination. Do you know any of these three methods?

    Well then the answer is pretty simple. You just need to graph both equations and find where they intersect.

    Nope. Your first guess was the closest. It is where the two lines intersect. Your first guess was just backwards. It's actually (3,5)
