2u+v=-8

Solve using the elimination methods (ordered pairs.. if any)

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

3u+2v=-15 ------------------------------------------------------------1)

2u+v=-8 -------------------------------------------------------------2)

multiplying equation 2 by -2

-4u-2v=16 --------------------------------------------------------------3)

adding equation 1 and 3 we get

-4u-2v=16

__________

-u+0=1

u=-1

Than substituting u in 1)

-3+2v=-15

2v=-12

v=-6

ordered pair is (-1,-6)
