How do you solve the system #4x-7y=9# and #y=x-3# using substitution?
You isolate one variable in one equation and substitute the value you find in the other equation.
You can choose any of the variables in any of the equations, but don't forget to substitute its value in the other one!
One tip is to isolate the one you find easier to manipulate, without fractions, for example, if possible.
Let's, then, isolate
Now, let's substitute its value in the first:
You see that now we have only
Now we've found
