hey valerie - did you mean 7=2x+5?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

err sorry, 7=2x+5

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

if that's what you meant, then what you need to do is substitute the value of y from one equation into the other

OpenStudy (anonymous):

now I'll leave it for you to ask more questions, or substitute x=8 back into either equation to get the value of y
