Hello there! In order to solve this problem, we must eliminate a variable.

Take the equation: 10x+y=4 3x+y=32

Convert 10x+y=4 to equal y.

y=4-10x

Use y in the second equation:

3x+ (4-10x) = 32

Figure out what x is.

Then once you figure out x, use the first equation 10x+y=4 and find y!

Easy as pie!
