Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

It depends on what variable you are solving for!

Let's solve for b

5a=2-b (subtract 2 from both sides

-b= 5a-2

Substitute b in for b in the second equation

5a=4+(5a-2)

5a=4+5a-2 (subtract 5a from both sides

0=-2


This is not solvable.
