8x-y=27

x+4y=24

Solve by elimination method (ordered pairs.. if any)

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

First let us number the equations

8x-y=27 (i)

x+4y=24 (ii)

Let us multiply (i) by 4 to get

32x-4y=108 (iii)

Now add (iii) and (ii) as shown below

32x-4y+x+4y=108+24

33x=132

x=4

Now let us use (ii) to find y

4+4y=24

4y=24-4

4y=20

y=5

An an ordered pair is a pair of numbers used locate a point on a coordinate plane or a gragh

The point (4,5) is an ordered pair
