    4x+y=12 (1)

    5x/5 = 20/5


    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.

    I think your original elimination method solution is not right. I am going to try both methods for you.

    1, elimination ...
