Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For substitution solve on of the equations for a variable, say x For the first equation solving for x would look like this: \[\frac{ y+8 }{ 7 } = x\] The take that value for x (y+8/7) and substitute it for x in the second equation. \[y = 5(\frac{ y+8 }{ 7 })  2\] and now you can solve it.
