Ordered pair..if any
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!
The goal is to get a common coefficient of the two equations, subtract, so as to solve for one variable.
Step 1: Notice we do not have a common coefficient. But if we add the two equations, the x's will still go away
14y=42 (divide by 14 to both sides)
Step 2: Substitute y=3 into the first equation
x+8(3)=26 (multiply 8 x 3)
x+24=26 (subtract 24 from both sides)
Step 3: check your work
Thus our ordered pair is (2,3).
