Answer:

(4, 1)

Step-by-step explanation:

since y=1/2x-1 in the first equation, you can substitute it into the second one:

1/2x – 1 = -x + 5

then add x to both sides:

3/2x – 1 = 5

then add 1 to both sides:

3/2x = 6

then divide both sides by the fraction to get:

x=4

then you substitute 4 into y=1/2x – 1

y = 1/2(4)-1

y = 1

so your answer is x=4 and y=1
