Q:
# Which statements are true about the ordered pair (−3, 1) and the system of equations? {x−4y=63x+y=−8 (More than 1 right answer WILL GIVE BRAINLIEST HELP ASAP!!)A.The ordered pair (−3, 1) is a solution to the first equation because it makes the first equation true.B.The ordered pair (−3, 1) is a solution to the second equation because it makes the second equation true.C.The ordered pair (−3, 1) is not a solution to the system because it makes at least one of the equations false.D. The ordered pair (−3, 1) is a solution to the system because it makes both equations true

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: c.The ordered pair (-3,1) is not a solution to the system because it makes atleast one of the equations false.Step-by-step explanation:For the points (-3, 1) to be a solution to the system of equations then it must satisfy the two equations.so we are going to check whether it satifies the two equations:x=-3 and y= 1x- 4y = 6-3 - 4(1) =6-3-4 =6-7 is not equal to 63x + y = -83(-3) + 1 = -8-9+1 = -8-8 = -8Though the points(-3,1) satisfy 3x + y = -8 but since it does not satisfy x - 4y = 6, then its not a solution to the system of the equations.
