Question #4313

how do i solve this math problem y=x+5
x+y=11

Expert's answer

This is the system of two linear equations. You can solve it using the

substitution method (for example):

Substitude the expression for y from the

first equation into the second:

x+x+5=11

So, 2x = 6 and x = 3. Then y = x

+ 5 = 3 + 5 = 8.

Answer: x=3, y=8.
