5-86.

Solve the system of equations below. Homework Help ✎

Try using the Substitution Method because the first equation is already in *y* = form.

5*x* − 3(−*x* − 2) = 22

5*x* + 3*x* + 6 = 22

8*x* + 6 = 22

8*x* + 6 − 6 = 22 − 6

8*x* = 16

*x* = 2

Now substitute 2 into either original equation for *x* and solve for *y*.
