 Question 649676: How do you solve this linear system using substitution? x+2y=4 and 2x-6y=3 I have tried many times and I always get it wrong. I can solve the easy questions, but as soon a it gets more difficult, I am lost.Answer by sheldonbbtrocks(94)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x+2y=4 2x-6y=3 We need to turn the x into a -2x, so we multiply the first system by -2 -2(x+2y=4) -2x-4y=-8 2x-6y=3 -10y=-5 y=2 Plug 2 into the first equation for y x+2(2)=4 x+4=4 x=0 Solution: (0,2)
