    hmm this is what ied do a+2b=-2 this means a = -2-b plug this into second and get -2-2b+7b=13 clean up and get 5b=15 then b=3 can u do the rest?

    okay 2b+7b=13 and 5b=15=3 so that mean that the pair are (5b=15, 3) right?

    Goten77 showed that b = 3 a +7b = 13 a +7(3) = 13 ... plug in b = 3 a + 21 = 13 a = 13 - 21 a = -8 -------------------------------- or a+ 2b = -2 a+ 2(3) = -2 a + 6 = -2 a = -2 - 6 a = -8 So either way, we get a = -8

    so the solution as an ordered pair is (-8, 3)
