You can solve systems by using the substitution method. Here are two examples. One says y=3x+2 and the second says 7x4y=7. The math teacher explains that if y is the same thing as 3x+2, then 3x+2 can be substituted for y in 7x4y=7. Once it is substituted, your equation will then read 7x4(3x+2)=7. The next step is to solve for x. Once you have worked out this equation, you will see that x=3. Finally, your last step is to solve for y. To solve for y, simply substitute x with 3. The equation will read y=3(3)+2. Y=7.
