##### 2 Answers

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Substituting value of y in terms of x in Eqn (1)"#,

#### Answer:

The solution is

#### Explanation:

We can also use elimination to solve this system of linear equations.

Rewrite Equation 2:

**Add: Equation 1 + Equation 2:**

Divide both sides by

**Substitute #2# for #y# in Equation 2 (either equation will work).**

Subtract

Divide both sides by

The solution is

graph{(5x-2y+5)(y-5x-3)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
