    Hmm... Unless there's a typo... The second equation 2x + y = y gives us 2x = 0, so x must be 0. From that, we can plug x = 0 into the first equation, and see that -2y = -1. So y = 1/2. So (0, 1/2) is our ordered pair solution.

    when 2x+y = 4 then 7x = 7 (after multiplying second by 2 and add to first) x =1 and y = 2 so, (1,2) is a solution......
