Consider the system of equations as:
1) 3XY=1
2) 2X+3Y=8
Verify if ordered pair (1,2) is solution of (1) and (2).
Substitute X=1 and Y=2 in equation (1).
3(1)2?=1
32?=1
1=1 (True)
Hence, (1,2) satisfies the equation (1).
Substitute X=1 and Y=2 in equation (2).
2(1)+3(2)?=8
2+6?=18
8=8 (True)
Hence, (1,2) satisfies the equation (2).
Hence, the ordered pair (1,2) is a solution to the given system of linear equations.
