Use the method of substitution to solve the system of linear equations

5a=4-b

5a=2-b

ordered pair, if any

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

You find the value of one variable then you substitute on the second equation to find the missing variable you can start with any equation

5a+b=2

find a

just a minute a slight problem .....................

Equation i..............5a=4-b

b=(4-5a)

substitute on the next equation

5a=2-(4-5a)

5a+5a= 4-2

10a=2

a=1.5

b =3.5

(a,b) 1.5,3.5
