 Question 159749This question is from textbook Algebra 1 : Tell me if I am on the right track coming up with my solution to these linear equations using substitutions. 5c+3d=11 5c-d=5 5c-d=5 d=5c-5 5c+3(5c-5)=11 5c+15c-15=11 20c=-4 c=-5 I got stuck after this, am I on the right track?This question is from textbook Algebra 1 Answer by solver91311(16897)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You were on the right track, but got off on a siding... 5c+3d=11 5c-d=5 5c-d=5 d=5c-5 5c+3(5c-5)=11 5c+15c-15=11 Up to this point, you were spot on, but 20c-15+15=11+15 20c=26 c=1.3 Then d = 5(1.3) - 5 d = 6.5 - 5 = 1.5 Check 5(1.3)+3(1.5)=6.5+4.5=11 Checks.
