    Those y's are a nuisance since we do not know its value. Can you think of a way of combining the two equations to obtain a new "y-free" one?

    You need to show us some work or tell us what you've tried or think you might need to try.

    You have 2 equations and 2 unknowns.....

    Welcome, BTW.
