There's not much to understand about LP at this level, and if you can't do these, you are screwed. I really suggest going on youtube or looking at MIT's open course pages. It will be a better use of your time.

here thake 2x-y=32 and subtract y making it 2x=32+y Then take y-5x=13 and subtract y making it 5x=13-y the y's cancel then you add the remaining things togeather so ur answer should be7x=45 then you divide so the answer is x=6.42 then you just go on from there hope i helped!;-)
