5a - 2b = 23

1a - 5b = 23

Equation 1 is in the correct format.

Equation 2 is in the correct format.

a - 5b = 23

a - 5b + 5b = 23 + 5b

a = 23 + 5b

5(a) - 2b = 23

5 * ((23 + 5b)/1) - 2b = 23

115 + 25b - 2b = 23

25b - 2b = 23 - 115

23b = -92

b = -4

5a - 2(-4) = 23

5a + 8 = 23

5a = 23 - 8

5a = 15
