 Question 111366: Find values for m and b in the following system so that the solution to the system is (-3, 4). 5x + 7y = b mx + y = 22 How would you go about finding this? Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the first equation Plug in x=-3 and y=4. This is the solution (-3,4) Multiply Add So Now move onto the next equation Plug in x=-3 and y=4 Multiply Subtract 4 from both sides Divide both sides by -3 to isolate m So
