    You can start by associating x and y to different items, and then envision a solution. I chose for this example x would represent the price of one apple and y one orange, and 36, the constant, the constant amount of money he has. The ordered pair solution act as a solution, and you can substitute them to double check their validity. Example: James wants to buy 4 apples and 3 oranges, but only has 36 dollars. (5,3) The apples will cost 5 dollars each and the oranges will cost 3 dollars each, so he can easily buy both with 36 dollars Hope this helps.
