## Oh wrong answer this is the real answers

A)(-1,-5)

B) (0,-3)

C)(2,6)***??

D)(3,1)

## if (2,6) is right then

6 = 2 -4

but it is not so

try a

-5 = -1 -4

-5 = -5 that seems to work

## To determine which ordered pair is a solution of the equation y = x - 4, you need to substitute the values of x and y from each option into the equation and check if it holds true. Let's go through each option:

a. (2,6)

Substituting x = 2 and y = 6 into the equation, we get 6 = 2 - 4, which simplifies to 6 = -2. Since this is not true, option a is not a solution.

b. (6,2)

Substituting x = 6 and y = 2 into the equation, we get 2 = 6 - 4, which simplifies to 2 = 2. Since this is true, option b is a solution.

c. (-2,6)

Substituting x = -2 and y = 6 into the equation, we get 6 = -2 - 4, which simplifies to 6 = -6. Since this is not true, option c is not a solution.

d. (3,1)

Substituting x = 3 and y = 1 into the equation, we get 1 = 3 - 4, which simplifies to 1 = -1. Since this is not true, option d is not a solution.

Therefore, the ordered pair that is a solution of the equation y = x - 4 is option b, (6,2).
