# 1 Answer

Equation 1: x = 5y

Equation 2: 2x - 3y = 14

2x - 3y = 14 Equation 2

2(5y) -3y = 14 Substitute value of x in equation 1 into equation 2

10y - 3y = 14 Simplify

7y = 14 Simplify

y = 2 Divide each side by 2

x = 5y Equation 1

x = 5(2) Substitute the value of y

x = 10 Simplify

The ordered pair is (10,2)
