I need to find the point of intersection between the following 2 lines:

x = 5y-2(1-y)

x = 19

x = 19

please explain how this is done. Thanks.

19=5y-2+2y (Distribute the -2)

19=7y-2 (Combine Like-Terms)

21=7y (Add 2 to both sides)

y=3 (Divide both sides by 3)

So, your coordinates will be (19, 3)
