Need help with subsituition

I'm happy to help. Show me some examples that you need help with.

Here is an example 

x+2y=13     y=2x+5

Apr 6th, 2015

plug y = 2x + 5 into the first equation

x + 2(2x+5) = 13

x + 4x + 10 = 13

5x = 3

x = 3/5

Okay I understand the first part now! :) 

But what would you do for the second one.....

Apr 6th, 2015

That was it. You use the second equation to solve for both. x = 3/5 is the solution for both
