    Well, we know that d = 2 so fill in the other ordered pairs. You will have 3 equations with 3 variables. Solve for b

    All I have so far are a+b+c = -2 and b = -2 - a - c....

    I just don't get how to solve for b. Right now I'm trying to plug in random answers.

    you get 4 = 0... which makes no sense
