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

    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.

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