How do you use an ordered pair?
An ordered pair, depending on the exact kind of math you're doing, may represent a point on a graph, a piece of data, etc. In elementary algebra, an ordered pair generally describes a point on a graph in the format (x, y).
What value of y would make the ordered pair a solution of the equation 4x and minus 2y 24 Given the ordered pair (3 y)?
A point is described as an ordered pair because it is a pair of numerical values (x, y) that are always presented in the same order. A point on a 2-dimensional plane (which is used very often from Algebra onward) is much easier to use if it is described in some way that is completely understandable, using some sort of universal "code" for points. An ordered pair is a pair of two numbers, one which…
