    so can you solve the second equation for y? It will make this easier

    The first is already in a convenient format, so you need to put the second into a convenient format too

    well, I can show you how to check it yourself if you'd like. All you have to do is put x=1 into both eqs and see if you get y=-5

    I am not getting y=-5 for equation 2. I am getting y=5. What did you get?
