#### Solution Preview

Well, first of all an ordered pair means a pair whose elements have been put in a pre-determined order. Unless declared otherwise, when dealing with an ordered pair as the solution to a system of equations or an equation, consider the first element to be X and the second one to be Y. That is the case here as well. Ok, now we have to check and ...
