Not really sure what to put, it's simple substitution with two equations. I have no idea at all how to do it.
Ok, without the equations, I will try to make this as encompassing as possible. Say you have an equation of 4x+y=16 & 12x+4y=52, you can solve these with "simple substitution."
To do this type of problem, you pick one of these equations and solve it for one of the equations. I will take the first equation and solve it for y.
Doing this leaves y=16-4x.
Now plug this into the second equation and replace the "y" with "16-4x" and solve for x to get a numerical value.
12x + 4(16-4x) = 56
12x + 64 - 16x = 52
-4x = -12
Now you take this "x=3" value and plug it into the other equation and solve for y.
4(3) + y = 16
So now you have x=3 and y=4. Now you're done!
Hope this helps.
