For the following set of equations, determine if each ordered pair is a solution.

391.

${ x − 4 y = −8 2 x + 5 y = 10 { x − 4 y = −8 2 x + 5 y = 10$

$(0,2)(0,2)$ $(4,3)(4,3)$

In the following exercises, solve the following systems by graphing.

392.

${ x − y = 5 x + 2 y = −4 { x − y = 5 x + 2 y = −4$

393.

${ x − y > −2 y ≤ 3 x + 1 { x − y > −2 y ≤ 3 x + 1$

In the following exercises, solve each system of equations. Use either substitution or elimination.

394.

${ 3 x − 2 y = 3 y = 2 x − 1 { 3 x − 2 y = 3 y = 2 x − 1$

395.

${ x + y = −3 x − y = 11 { x + y = −3 x − y = 11$

396.

${ 4 x − 3 y = 7 5 x − 2 y = 0 { 4 x − 3 y = 7 5 x − 2 y = 0$

397.

${ y = − 4 5 x + 1 8 x + 10 y = 10 { y = − 4 5 x + 1 8 x + 10 y = 10$

398.

${ 2 x + 3 y = 12 −4 x + 6 y = −16 { 2 x + 3 y = 12 −4 x + 6 y = −16$

In the following exercises, translate to a system of equations and solve.

Liz paid $160 for 28 tickets to take the Brownie troop to the science museum. Children’s tickets cost$5 and adult tickets cost $9. How many children’s tickets and how many adult tickets did Liz buy? 406. A pharmacist needs 20 liters of a 2% saline solution. He has a 1% and a 5% solution available. How many liters of the 1% and how many liters of the 5% solutions should she mix to make the 2% solution? 407. Translate to a system of inequalities and solve. Andi wants to spend no more than$50 on Halloween treats. She wants to buy candy bars that cost $1 each and lollipops that cost$0.50 each, and she wants the number of lollipops to be at least three times the number of candy bars.
