# How do you determine the solution in terms of a system of linear equations for #5x + 2y = 5#, #3x + y = 2#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

You can solve for the solution using elimination or substitution. Personally, I think it will be easier to use substitution for this problem, so that's what I will use.

First, let's look at the second equation. You will notice that it is easy to isolate

Now that we've isolated

Now that we have solved for the value of

So the solutions are:

**Checking**

In case you are unsure of your answer, you can check this by substituting the solutions in both of the equations.
