Question

Which of the following represents a valid first step to solving this system of equations using the substitution method?

2x – y = 7

x = 2y – 1

2x – y = 2y – 1

x = 2(2x – y) – 1

2x – (2y – 1) = 7

2(2y – 1)- y = 7

    Answer:
    2(2y – 1) – y = 7
    Step-by-step explanation:
    I guess the 2 equations are
    2x – y = 7
    x = 2y – 1
    substitution message that you use one equation to express one variable by the other, and then you use that in the other equation to get one equation for one variable. then you solve for that, and use that result in the first equation to since for the second variable.
    the equations are already defined that way, that the second equation directly defines x as an excision of y.
    so, this needs to be used then in the first equation.
    and that makes
    2(2y – 1) – y = 7
    the correct first step.
