Solve using substitution
So if you solve for x using the first equation, you get: x = 5y - 5.
From there you can plug that into the second equation which would give you:
Simplifying from that point, you get y = -9.
Now that you have one of the values, you can solve for x by plugging it back into the equation we made (x = 5y - 5) and getting to the answer x = -40.
