# Find an ordered pair (x y) that is a solution to the equation x-2y=2

**Solution:**

Given equation is x - 2y = 2

An ordered pair (x,y) represents those values of x and y that make the equation true.

The trivial value can be found by replacing

x= 0 and find the y value

Or

In other way by replacing

y = 0 and find the x value

**Case-1:**

X = 0 in the given equation x -2y =2

0 -2y =2

-2y =2

By using cancellation law of multiplication

y = -1

The ordered pair is(0,-1)

**Case-2:**

If y=0 in the given equation

x - 2(0) =2

x - 0 = 2

x = 2

The ordered pair is (2,0)

## Find an ordered pair (x y) that is a solution to the equation x-2y=2

**Summary:**

The ordered pair satisfying the equation x-2y=2 is either (0,-1) or (2,0)
