If the missing operational signs are pluses, that's 3b^2 + 4b + 1

### What is the ordered pair of a equals 3b - 4 and a plus b equals 16?

Write down both equations (I'll label them (1) and (2)):
(1) a = 3b - 4
(2) a + b = 16
Pass b to the left side of the equation (1):
(1) a - 3b = -4
(2) a + b = 16
Multiply (1) by -1:
(1) -a + 3b = 4
(2) a + b = 16
Add down both equations:
-a + 3b + a + b = 4 + 16
4b = 20
b = 5
Replace b in (2):
a + 5 = 16
a = 11

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### 6xminus 3b plus 8 equals 16?

6x - 3b + 8 = 16.
Since you cannot simplify the equation, the answer is 6x - 3b
= 8.
However, if you would like to find x, you can
substitute b with '0':
6x - 3b + 8 = 16
6x - 3b = 8
6x - 3(0) = 8
6x = 8
6 6
x = 1.33 or 1(1/3)
If you want to find b, you can substitute
x with '0':
6x - 3b + 8 = 16
6x - 3b = 8
6(0) - 3b = 8
-3b = 8
-3 -3
b = -2.66 or -2(2/3)

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### 4a plus 2 equals 3b-5?

The equation cannot be solved as there are two unknowns. However
it can be simplified and the two unknowns (a and b) expressed in
terms of the second unknown.
1) Expressing a in terms of b
4a + 2 = 3b - 5
4a = 3b -7 if desired this could be stated as a = (3b - 7)/4
2) Expressing b in terms of a
3b - 5 = 4a + 2
3b = 4a + 7 if desired this could be stated as b = (4a +
7)/3
