s + p = 18 s = p + 4 .... or p = s - 4 now it is just a substitution problem.....can you solve it now ?

we are going to sub in s - 4 in for p in the first equation. s + p = 18 s + s - 4 = 18 2s - 4 = 18.....add 4 to both sides 2s = 18 + 4 2s = 22 -- now divide both sides by 2 s = 11.....so there are 11 steaks
