Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can solve this by using a method called elimination. You could use substitution too, but sometimes elimination makes life a bit simpler. Plus, students tend to lean away from elimination, but with practice it can be better the sub. We can multiply the top equation by 5. This gives us 5x + 10y = 15 5x + 3y = 2 13y = 13 y = 1 Now plug that sucker back into any of those equations and solve for x :)
