SAT math question about simultaneous equations

\begin{cases} 4x+ 2y=7 \\ x + y=3 \end{cases}

The method of substitution (step-by-step) is:

1.Solve one of the equations for one unknown in terms of the other.
2.Then, substitute that in the other equation.
3.That will yield one equation in one unknown, which we can solve.

So, in your case

\begin{cases} 4x+ 2y=7 \\ y=3-x \end{cases}

\begin{cases} 4x+ 2(3-x)=7 \\ y=3-x \end{cases}

\begin{cases} 4x+ 6-2x=7 \\ y=3-x \end{cases}

\begin{cases} 2x=7-6 \\ y=3-x \end{cases}

\begin{cases} 2x=1 \\ y=3-x \end{cases}

\begin{cases} x=\frac{1}{2} \\ y=3-\frac{1}{2}=\frac{6-1}{2}=\frac{5}{2} \end{cases}

Hope these help!!:D:D
