Which ordered pair is a solution of the system of equations y=x^2-x-20 and y=3x-15?
a. (-5,-30)
b. (-1,-18)
c. (0,5)
d. (5,-1)

When I solved the system of equations I got 5 and -1. What do I do next?

asked by Angie
  1. If x = 5
    y = 0, not one of the solutions listed
    If x = -1. y = -3-15 = -18
    so
    (-1,-18) is what they are looking for.
