 Question 25222: Which ordered pair is a solution of the system? x+y =5 3x+4y =14 (1,4),(6,-1)or(3,2) x+2y =7 3x-7y =8 (-1,4),(5,1)or(3,2) x-5y =-2 2x-3y =10 (-2,0),(3,2)or(8,2) Answer by elima(1433)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!For each one is all you have to do is plug in the x and y given to you, and find which pair solves BOTH equations. x+y =5 3x+4y =14 (1,4),(6,-1)or(3,2) (1)+(4)=5 This solves this equation, lets check the other; 3(1)+4(4)=14 3+16=14 No, it does not solve this one, so the ordered pair does not work. Let's try the second; 6+-1=5 Yes, 3(6)+4(-1)=14 18-4=14 Yes, so this ordered pair works; now try the last; 3+2=5 3(3)+4(2)=14 9+8=14 No, so the only one is; (6,-1) Now you try the others; =)
