1)

y = -5x + 2

y = 3x - 14

Set them both equal to each other since both are equal to y.

-5x + 2 = 3x - 14

+5x +5x

2 = 8x -14

+14 +14

16 = 8x

2)

x+y=0

5x+y=4

5x+y=4

---------

Multiply the top by -1

-x - y = 0

5x + y = 4

Add the two equations.

5x-x = 4x, y - y = 0, 4 + 0 = 4

4x = 4

5(1) + y = 4

5 + y = 4
