9x+5y=-42

Find the ordered pairs

  • algebra -

    (multiplying the second equation by -5 to cancel the y's)
    9x+5y=-42
    10x-5y=-110
    19x=-152
    x=-8
    Put that in either ORIGINAL equation to solve for y, and then your ordered pair would be (-8, y), replacing y with whatever you get for y.

    The ordered pairs represent values for x and y. (1,1) is x =1 and y=1. Substitute these ordered pairs in the equations and evaluate to see if are true. Then, graph the points and line to find another solution.
