Problem: 1. y = x + 2 2x + y = 8 Answer by stanbon(57333)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!y = x + 2 2x + y = 8 ------------- Solve both for "y": y = x+2 y = -2x+8 ------------- Substitute "x+2" in place of "y" in the 2nd equation: x+2 = -2x+8 3x = 6 x=2 --------- Substitute into y = x+2 to solve for y: y = 2+2 = 4 ============================== Cheers, Stan H.
