solve by the substitution method.
8x+3y=-40
x=48-7y
THE ANSWER SHOULD BE AN ORDERED PAIR. PLEASE HELP ASAP

  • college Algebra -

    First you need to replace the x in the original equation with the given variable 48-7y
    8(48-7y) + 3y = -40
    384 -56y +3y=-40

    -56y + 3y = -40 - 384
    -53y = -424
    -53y/-53=-424/-53
    y=8 x=-8

    Ordered pair (8,-8)

    sorry, I typed ordered pair wrong, the ordered pair is (-8, 8)
