4-97.

Use the Equal Values Method.

Substitute your answer for *x* back into one of the original equations to find *y*.

(5, 3)

*y* = *y*

−*x* + 8 = *x* − 2

−*x* + 8 = *x* − 2

+2 +2

−*x* + 10 = *x*

+*x* +*x*

10 = 2*x*

5 = *x*

*y* = −*x* + 8*y* = −(5) + 8*y* = 3

Follow the steps outlined in part (a).
