Nov 12, 2015

#### Explanation:

Change the equation to make y as a subject.

Subtitute equation 1 into equation 2 to find x.
I draw an arrow there indicates that, to eliminate the 4, u need to times it to -4x and -1.

Subtitute the answer, x=11.5 into equation 1 to find y and solve it!

Feel free to ask me if u have any question :)
