# considering these two equations below what does the x equal in the solution of the system of equations (answer)

You can solve this by using substitution. Think of it a bit like this -> y = y right? So you have two different equations for 'y' - - which must equal each other. So: 2x + 2 = (1/2)x + 5 rearrange a bit (subtract the ''excess'' 1/2 x from both sides......
