Answer:A is the correct answer

Step-by-step explanation:If you plug y=x+10 in for the Y variable you just have to solve by multiplying.

1.) It should look like this:

2x + 3(x +10) = 40

2.) You will distribute the three which will make the equation look like this:

2x + 3x + 30 = 40

3.) Add like terms. Then subtract 30 from both sides. Then divide 5 by both sides to get the variable x alone.

Hope that helps
