    So \(x \in \{1, 2, 3\}\) and \(y\in \{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7\}\). You want to find every pair that fits the equality \(2x+y=7\).

    I would start by making \(y\) a function of \(x\). So we have \(y(x) = -2x+7\). I would then plug in each possible \(x\).

    \[ x=1 \implies y = 5 \\ x=2 \implies y = 3 \\ x=3 \implies y = 1 \]So the answers we get is: \[F = \{(1, 5), (2,3), (3,1)\}\]

    A general heuristic I can see being useful is to make the larger set be a function of the smaller set, because you have to do less plugging stuff in.
