# How do you solve 2x+5y=11 and 4x+3y=1 using substitution?

Mar 5, 2018

$y = 3 , x = - 2$

#### Explanation:

We have $2 x = 11 - 5 y$

Multiplying both sides by $2$,we get $4 x = 22 - 10 y$

substituting this value in $2$nd equation,we have,

$22 - 10 y = 1 - 3 y$

Or,$21 = 7 y$

Thus,we get, $y = 3$ and substituting this value in first equation we get $x$ as $- 2$
