solve by substitution

5x-2y = -5
y - 5x = 3
could someone take a min a show me how to do this problem by steps so i can do the rest of my problems
and wait a min so i may ask questions. I m failing my algebra class and desparately need help.

5x-2y = -5
y - 5x = 3

take the second equation and solve for y.
y= 5x+3

Now,put that in the first equation for y.
5x-2(5x+3)=-5
and solve.
