I'd go with B, since
x + 5y = 9 means that
x = 5y+9
and you can use that to do the solution of #1.
Any other substitution would involve some fractions. 👍

A=1/2h (b1 + b2) Solve for b1 A=1/2h (b1 + b2) Solve for b1 I assume this is A = (1/2)(h)(b1 + b2); i.e., the h is in the numerator and not the denominator Multiply both sides by 2. 2A = (2*1/2)h(b1 + b2). 2*1/2 on the right side is 1. 2A = h(b1 + b2)
