Esmy 3 years ago Decide whether the ordered pair is a solution of the given system. (-1, 6)

1. Esmy

(-1, 6) x + y = 7 x - y = -5

2. Esmy

sorry left out some part of the question but i think it is

3. Outkast3r09

plug it in, do you get -5?

4. Snipa420

x=-1, and y=6, from the ordered pair. so just plug those into your given system of equations.

5. Outkast3r09

(x,y)=(-1,6)

6. jwheele1

X , Y (-1, 6) x + y = 7 x - y = -5 (-1) + 6 = 7(-1) -6 = -5 5 = -7 -6 = -5 5 = -13 = -5 No of those numbers equal each other. statement is false.

7. Snipa420

Yo jwheele1, don't solve it for the person. Help them. that is what this website is about, I think

8. Esmy

no solution

9. jwheele1

I usually solve it but show the work So that they can see each step.

10. jwheele1

On bigger more complex problems i do break it up and ask questions

11. Snipa420

12. Esmy

what I'm I right no solution?

13. Snipa420

@Esmy The ordered pair is not a solution of the given system. The statement is false.

14. Esmy

okay thank you ... :)

15. jwheele1

The answer is not a number or no solution....the anser is either true r false....in this case false

16. jwheele1

or..."no, theordered pair does not provide a solution to the given system."
