Does this mean that you are required to use "substitution" or some other particular method(s) for these exercises?

Does this mean that you have obtained the correct solutions to some of the above, but not to others? If so, with which are you requesting assistance? And what were your steps and solutions?

Please be complete. Thank you!

4x-27=10

5x+y=14

One thing we can do in a expression like this is to add a number to both sides.

so lets add 27

$\displaystyle 4x - 27 + 27 = 10 + 27$

remember that we must do the same thing on both sides of the '='

We can do anything, add, substract, divide, multiply, as long as we do it on**both sides**and don't break any rules (but let's leave that).
