Help please? Solve by the elimination method. 4a + 4b =8 -4a + b =37 Is there a solution (type an ordered pair), infinitely many solutions, or no solutions?

    4(a+b) = 8 a+b = 4 subtract in second equation: -5a = 33 a = 33/-5 Therefore b = 8.6

    Well that one I got incorrect, so I need to do a similar excercise, what i'm looking for is to be shown how to do these step by step so I can learn the process myself, can you help me? Here is the next equation.. 4a + 5b =13 -4a +b =17

    b=9 4a + 4b =8 4a+4(9)=8 4a=-28 a=-7 Ordered pair is (-7,9)
