## anonymous 5 years ago for the following equation y=-12x+5 complete the following ordered pair so that it is a solution to the equation ( , -3)

1. immanuelv

plug in -3 to y then you can use this -3 = -12x+5 2= -12x -1/6 =x hope this helps

i am confused

$-3=-12x+5$ $-3-5=-12x$ $-8=-12x$ $\frac{-8}{-12}=x$ $x=\frac{2}{3}$

i am fairly sure this is right, even though i see two different answers above. step number one should be to subtract 5 from both sides, not add 5
