Use the method of substitution to solve the linear equation!
6a=6-b
6a=5-b
please help I don't get it it needs to be an ordered pair.

  1. Steve

    Look at the two equations. If 6a=6-b, substitute that into the other equation:

    (6-b) = 5-b
    add b to both sides and you have
    6=5

    There are no solutions to that "equation".
