Q:
# Which ordered pairs in the form (x, y) are solutions to the equation 7x−5y=28 ?Solation 7x−5y=28 ? A. (−6, −14) B. (7,9) C. (4,10) D.(-1,-7)

Accepted Solution

A:

Probe every pair:

pair x y 7x - 5y

A. (-6,-14) -6 -14 7(-6) - 5(-14) = -42 + 70 = 28 => it is a solution

B. (7,9) 7 9 7(7) - 5(9) = 49 - 45 = 4 => not a solution

C. (4,10) 4 10 7(4) - 5(10) = 28 - 50 = - 22 => not a solution

C. (-1,-7) -1 -7 7(-1) - 5(-7) = -7 + 35 = 28 => it is a solution

Answer: option A. (-6,-14) and option D. (-1,-7)

pair x y 7x - 5y

A. (-6,-14) -6 -14 7(-6) - 5(-14) = -42 + 70 = 28 => it is a solution

B. (7,9) 7 9 7(7) - 5(9) = 49 - 45 = 4 => not a solution

C. (4,10) 4 10 7(4) - 5(10) = 28 - 50 = - 22 => not a solution

C. (-1,-7) -1 -7 7(-1) - 5(-7) = -7 + 35 = 28 => it is a solution

Answer: option A. (-6,-14) and option D. (-1,-7)
