Ordered pairs ( x , y ) as solutions to Linear Equations
Here are some examples of Linear Equations. The variables have ones as their exponents. They create lines that contain many ( x , y ) points that satisfy the given equations.

Ordered pairs ( x , y ) as solutions to Linear Equations
Here are some examples of Linear equations. The variables have ones as their exponents. They create lines that contain many ( x , y ) points that satisfy the given equations. Every solution of a Linear equation is an ordered pair of numbers, x and y. This pair, when substituted into the equation, creates an equality. If no equality exists, the ordered pair IS NOT a solution.

STEPS : 1. Substitute the given ( x , y ) into the equation.
Ordered pairs ( x , y ) as solutions to Linear Equations Here are some examples of Linear equations. The variables have ones as their exponents. They create lines that contain many ( x , y ) points that satisfy the given equations. Every solution of a Linear equation is an ordered pair of numbers, x and y. This pair, when substituted into the equation creates an equality. If no equality exists, the ordered pair IS NOT a solution. STEPS : 1. Substitute the given ( x , y ) into the equation. 2. Check to see if an equality exists.

Substitute x = 2, and y =3 into the equation.
EXAMPLE : Substitute x = 2, and y =3 into the equation.

Substitute x = 2 , and y = 3 into the equation.
EXAMPLE : Substitute x = 2 , and y = 3 into the equation.

Substitute x = 2 , and y = 3 into the equation.
EXAMPLE : Substitute x = 2 , and y = 3 into the equation. Since this creates an equality, the given point IS a solution to the equation.

EXAMPLE :

EXAMPLE : Substitute x = , and y = 7 into the equation.

EXAMPLE : Substitute x = , and y = 7 into the equation. Since the equality doesn’t exist, the given ordered pair IS NOT a solution to the equation.
