4x+y=12 (1)

x-y=8(2)

4x+y=12

x-y=8

5x/5 = 20/5

X=4

4(4) =y - 12

16+y = 12

Y =4

I think this would be an example of elimination method for solving a system of equations however I am unsure how it would transfer to substitution method thus I am needing assistance. I am needing this to be illustrated if you will in substitution but am unclear on the method and how it is done so am looking for assistance.
