7r-4s=-7 (7)
4r+7s=61 (4)

49r - 28s = -49
16r + 28s = 244
---------------
65r = 195
195/65 = 3 (simplified) (3, is the first number of the ordered pair.)

Now this is the part that I get lost on. I know I am suppose to substitute 3 into one of the equations above, but how do I determine which one. So if I substitute 3 into the 1st equation:

7(3)-4s= -7
21 - 4s= -7
------------
21 = -7 would my answer be -7/21

Substitute 3 into the 2nd equation:

4(3)+7s = 61
12 + 7s = 61
-------------
12 = 61 would my answer be 61/12

(3, is the first number of the ordered pair.)

(3,-7/21) or (3,61/12) which ordered pair is correct?

After re-working the problem, I'm pretty confident this is the correct answer to the 2nd part of the problem. Can someone confirm my work....

5/8 x+1/16 x=11/16+x 16*(5/8 x+1/16 x) = 16(11/16+x) 10x + x = 11 + 16x, so the next step is: 11x = 11 + 16x (get x-terms on the left.) -x = 11 (divide by -1.) x = 11 Is this correct?
