8a+6b=-6

-8a+b=55

Determine the solution of the system , ordered pairs if needed.

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

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8a + 6b = -6 ---(1)

-8a + b = 55 ---(2)

Add equations (1) and (2) to eliminate a

8a + 6b = -6

-8a + b = 55

7b = 49

b = 49/7

b = 7

Substitute value of b in equation (1)

8a + 6*7 = -6

8a + 42 = -6

8a = -6 - 42

8a = -48

a = -48/8

a = -6

So the solution of the system is

a = -6, b = 7

In ordered pairs (-6, 7)
