    Another quick question?

    If they were to give you a solution to a pair of equations, how would you go about finding that pair? For instance, (3,5). Thanks again in advance.

    There are an infinite number of possibilites. eg.

    2(3) -1(5) = 1 => 2x - y = 1 ..... equation 1.

    3(3) + 2(5) = 19 => 3x + 2y = 19 ..... equation 2.
