    erm. so 2x+y =46 2x+x+4=46 (sub in the y as x+4 because it tells you that) 3x=46-4 x=42/3

    yup so solve for the x then do (x,x+4) is my guess of what they want .-. So then it's (x,y) which is what an ordered pair is ?

    double check your answer to see if it's right. I don't get how you solved this. But if u are not sure. just double check. it won't hurt to do it.
