5-86.

Solve the system of equations below. Homework Help ✎

$y=-x-2$
$5x-3y=22$

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

5x − 3(−x − 2) = 22
5x + 3x + 6 = 22
8x + 6 = 22
8x + 6 − 6 = 22 − 6
8x = 16
x = 2
Now substitute 2 into either original equation for x and solve for y.
