# If (6,k) is a solution of the equation 3x + y - 22 = 0, then, what is the value of k?

The above equation is a linear equation in two variables whose x value is given as 6 and y value is given as 'k'.

## Answer: If (6,k) is a solution of the equation 3x + y - 22 = 0, then the value of k is 4.

Let us proceed step by step.

**Explanation:**

According to the given equation : 3x + y = 22

Since (6,k) is a solution,

This implies on substituting x as '6' and y as 'k', the given equation reduces to zero

Therefore, 3(6) + k = 22

⇒ 18 + k = 22

⇒ k = 22 - 18

⇒ k = 4
