Line A: y = x − 2 Line B: y = 3x + 4 Which of the following shows the solution to the system of equations and explains why? (−3, −5), because the point does not lie on any axis (−3, −5), because the point satisfies both equations (−4, −8), because the point satisfies one of the equations (−4, −8), because the point lies between the two axes
